Fasting Ramadan exposes the diabetic patient to major metabolic complications: severe hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, ketoacidosis and thromboembolic complications. A good assessment of the patient's risk level, individualized therapeutic education, regular self-monitoring and therapeutic adjustment make fasting possible and completely safe. Several recommendations and expert consensuses have established proposals for optimizing the management of diabetes during Ramadan. We report recent, practical and simple recommendations from the International Diabetes Federation and the International Diabetes and Ramadan Alliance (IDF-DAR), to assist health professionals in the management of fasting diabetics regardless of their risk level.
