Advice for people with diabetes fasting for Ramadan

Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar when Muslims devote themselves to their faith and fast from sunrise to sunset. Ramadan starts on Sunday 5th May lasting until Tuesday 4th June and is obligatory for almost all Muslims.

Although certain groups are exempt for health and other reasons, some people with diabetes are keen to observe the fast, although the long daylight hours in the UK at this time of the year makes it a challenging time, even for those without medical conditions.
