Top ailments people suffer from when fasting during Ramadan

As the days of fast for Ramadan go by, a few of those who fast may be under difficult conditions. Here’s a quick round up of the most common ailments for those who fast during Ramadan and how to properly take care of them.

Upset stomach. After fasting for a number of hours, comes a feast during Iftar and Suhoor – and if you’re not careful with what you’re eating, it may lead to an upset stomach the morning after. Those who fast should monitor exactly what and just how much they’ve already eaten, avoid and/or limit oily, spicy, and deep fried food, and just generally avoid overeating, according to Dietitians.org. It will also be beneficial for your health to take a long walk or a stroll after you had your meal.

Migraine. Sharp pains in your head may occur and might be triggered when you’re stressed, when you skip meals, or when you’re thirsty or hungry. Those who fast are advised to get enough sleep to mitigate the effects, as per a report from The National.  Should the migraine pain persist for several days, individuals are advised to go to their doctor to get a check-up.

Fatigue. Fasting can result in dehydration and the body clock may find it hard to adjust with the new meal timings and sleep patterns resulting to not only fatigue, but exhaustion, impatience and distraction as well. Individuals who suffer from fatigue are advised not to drive on the roads especially during the pre-Iftar rush, when majority of the motorists are hurrying to head back to their homes, as per Road Safety UAE. They are likewise advised to seek the help of a medical professional before their fatigue affects their overall health.

The observance of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon.
