Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate whether fasting diabetic patients received recommendations regarding fasting or they consulted the physicians before and during Ramadan along with the affect of sociodemographic factors on Ramadan fasting. The study was conducted on 190 diabetic patients after 2014 Ramadan Month. A questionnaire was collected regarding sociodemographic characteristics, diabetes-related characteristics, recommendations of physicians, and behavioral patterns of fasting patients. Overall 41.6% of diabetic patients fasted during Ramadan. 83.5% of them did not go to physician during Ramadan, 65.8% did not consult physicians before fasting and 12.7% were informed by physicians regarding fasting and diabetes. Result of the study was that both physicians and patients were not well aware of the importance of pre-Ramadan education and close follow-up during fasting.
