The month of Ramadan has started today from 12th March. These thirty days are considered very sacred in the religion of Islam. It is necessary for all the people who follow this religion to keep a fast called Roza during this period. However, it is not necessary to do this if you are ill.

But many people keep fast even if they have diabetes. However, in case of a sugar problem, one should not compromise with food and drink. But by keeping some things in mind, diabetic patients can also keep fast. Here you can learn some such important things.

get enough sleep

One of the things you should never compromise on is sleep hours. Especially during fasting, adequate amount of sleep is essential. This helps in digesting food and does not cause digestive problems later.

hydrate yourself well

Dehydration is a common and serious risk for fasting people, especially diabetics. In such a situation, consume enough lemon water, buttermilk, coconut water, melon, fresh fruit juice with low sugar, and rose syrup. With this, there will be no shortage of water in the body throughout the day.

Include Probiotics

Consume one spoon of curd after a meal during Sehri. This will help in avoiding food and also reduce the chances of acidity during fasting.

Start your fast with sugar-free drinks

Have a sugar-free hydrating drink during iftar and then proceed to dinner. Keep in mind that do not consume high-fat food items like samosa, kebab, or puri. Opt for leafy vegetables, fruits, dry fruits, and lean meat like skinless chicken, and fish.

Break the fast with a balanced meal

Eat a balanced diet during Sehri that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grain bread, legumes, lean proteins, low-sugar cereals, milk, and juice.

check blood sugar

Keep checking blood sugar, this can help you get timely help from health experts in case of problems. Also, people taking insulin must consult a doctor before fasting.
