Fasting and DiabetesThis article looks at religious fasting and its impact on the management of diabetes during periods of abstinence and fasting.

Two major religions, Islam and Christianity (many other religions also have fast periods), have periods of fasting around this time of year so, we will have a look at their fasting practices and then some of the general issues around diabetes and fasting.
