Diabetes UK's Ramadan 2015 campaign was launched this summer as many of the nation's Muslims began to prep for the holiday. Bringing awareness to fasting rules that don't allow insulin injections, this campaign offers support to religious diabetes sufferers and is a source for disease management tips that fall in line with Muslim beliefs.
Whether injecting insulin while fasting or following Diabetes UK's in-depth tips and factsheet resources -- available both on its website and social media channels -- Muslims suffering with diabetes are sure to respond positively to this campaign. This initiative recognizes the diverse nature of the disease and offers help and support to those who may not have access to traditional treatment methods.
In addition to following traditional treatment routines during fasting sessions, the campaign also suggests diet and exercise tips that will strengthen the immune systems of sufferers who choose to stick to strict religious practices during the Ramadan holiday.
