Muslims in the Midlands who have diabetes are advised to speak to their GP if they decide to fast during Ramadan.
The British Medical Journal has found in a recent study that the change in the eating patterns of Muslims during Ramadan significantly increases the risk of blood sugar problems.
Dr Ather Hussain said: “Islam is very clear, that if a person feels that their illness will prolong or become more severe as a result of fasting, then he or she is exempt from that, and they can fast at a later date. So it is best to get advice from their local GP.”
