As per a team of researchers, fasting during Ramadan, the ninth month of the Muslim year, can help to improve blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

National University of Singapore’s study, which looked at 153 patients before, during and after Ramadan three years ago, was done after over 5,000 patients in a local chronic disease database and showed improving blood glucose control during Ramadan, The Straits Times reported.

Patients in the latest study were given questionnaires on their diet and physical activity while blood tests were done to determine blood sugar levels at specific times.

Researcher Joyce Lee said that those with type two diabetes can safely fast during Ramadan as long as their diabetic medications are adjusted beforehand, to prevent abnormally low blood sugar levels.
