Managing Diabetes during Ramadan

During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, people with diabetes are faced with a major change in the frequency and amount of food they eat and in the daily activities they can participate in, which may lead to complications.

Lilly has partnered with Healthy Interactions and the International Diabetes Federation to develop a new outreach program to help improve diabetes management skills. The map – available only in select markets abroad – covers several topics about diabetes management during Ramadan, including understanding the risks of fasting, what happens to the body while fasting, managing a day during Ramadan and creating a diabetes and Ramadan management plan.
