Ramadan with Caring

Introduction

Hypoglycaemia

Low Blood Glucose

If your blood sugar drops below 3.9 mmol/L, you may start to experience trembling, sweating, palpitations, hunger, headaches or feeling faint.

This condition is commonly due to:
  • Insufficient carbohydrate intake
  • Eating your sahur meal too early
  • Skipping your sahur meal
  • Intense physical activity during the day or finally
  • Not adjusting your insulin or oral antidiabetic medication dosage during fasting.

Hyperglycaemia

High Blood Glucose

If your blood sugar spikes above 16.6 mmol/L on the other hand, you may experience extreme thirst or hunger, frequent urination, lethargy, nausea or bouts of vomiting.

This is usually due to:
  • The excessive consumption of carbohydrates and sugary food or drinks
  • Missing your prescribed medication
  • Inactivity or sleeping through the day.
