A Safer Ramadan

Our Head of Innovation Research and Clinical Effectiveness – Sue Palmer-Hill recently spoke to BBC Northampton about the project ‘A Safer Ramadan’.

In the United Kingdom, it is estimated that there are over 325,000 Muslim people with type 2 diabetes. Fasting during the month of Ramadan is an integral part of the Muslim religion. Thanks to the study undertaken by our Innovation and Research and Diabetes Multidisciplinary teams, the Diabetes Education and Self-Management for Ongoing and Newly Diagnosed (DESMOND) programme has been adapted for implementation as an innovative educational intervention known as “A Safer Ramadan”. This is designed to meet the specific needs of Muslim services users who observe Ramadan.

The full study summary for ‘A Safer Ramadan’ can be found at the bottom of this article.

For more information on how to fast with diabetes – you can find a factsheet below. Information on how to respond in the event of a hypoglycaemic attack can also be found below.
