Don't forget: diabetes and Ramadan support

With Ramadan starting at sunset May 15 and continuing for 30 days until Thursday 14 June, Muslims observing Ramadan will fast from sunrise to sunset during this period, with the first period of fasting starting at sunrise on Wednesday 16 May.

For Muslims with diabetes who observe Ramadan and fast during this period, the risks can be significant if their diabetes is not well managed. It is important that they receive practical advice and support both before and during this period to ensure they manage their diabetes effectively.

Pharmacy has a key role in supporting this and now is the time to be talking to your patients.
