A new study has investigated the risk of fasting during Ramadan for people with type 1 diabetes, and how insulin pump therapy compared to multiple daily injections (MDI) in controlling blood glucose levels.Last year, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) issued new guidelines for people with diabetes during Ramadan, which is observed by more than one billion Muslims every year.People with type 1 diabetes are not advised to fast during Ramadan, which this year takes place between Friday 26 May and Saturday 24 June. This is because fasting while taking insulin can increase the risk of hypoglycemia. Insulin treatment should not be discontinued during Ramadan because this can raise the likelihood of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).In this new study, conducted by the University of Colorado Denver, 156 participants with type 1 diabetes were observed, all of whom fasted during Ramadan.
