Ramadan fasting constitutes a real challenge, for people with diabetes, their health care providers (HCP) and even for their families. During the sacred month of Ramadan, people who fast neither eat nor drink from dawn to sunset. Among disabled individuals with acute or chronic diseases, certain diabetics can be exempted from fasting. Many people with diabetes still prefer to fast, without medical guidance, exposing themselves to certain health risks as a direct consequence of fasting or because of a change in food and frequency of medication intake. Although the benefit of experimental supplemented fasting has been well demonstrated, in diabetics, the consequential effects of fasting during Ramadan remain often controversial. Significantly increasing one’s intake after breaking the fast, could unbalance the metabolism of patients with diabetes and influence their nutritional intake and their anthropometric parameters. Concerning diet during Ramadan, people usually eat two meals, one before dawn (Sahur) and one just after sunset (Iftar).
