Can my daughter fast?

  • Hello Mrs. Carlioglu, my daughter is 10 years old and she has been suffering from type 1 diabetes for 4 months. She uses insulin (Novorapid-lantus) 4 times a day. She had been fasting in the month of Ramadan since she was about 7 years old. She wants to fast this year too. Can she fast? What kind of path should we follow if she fasts?

  • Doctor's Answer: Prof. Dr. Ayşe ÇARLIOĞLU Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases Hello, get well soon. There are a lot of studies on type 2 diabetes and Ramadan, no insulin in type 1 diabetes, There are also studies on this subject, but very few. Your daughter should not have hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia during her growth and development. It is an issue that can be decided with strict follow-up with your doctor. Have a good day.
