According to the conclusions drawn from two separate studies, it appears that the combination of a nutritional education program accompanied by regular monitoring, together with the introduction of a specific formula adapted to diabetes, represents an interesting strategy for an optimal management of type 2 diabetes during the fasting month of Ramadan.

The nutritional education and monitoring program provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of dietary practices during fasting, allowing them to make informed choices regarding their diet.

In addition to facilitating significant weight loss, averaging 1.21 kg, this approach results in notable improvements in blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure levels.

Continuous monitoring throughout the program allows for personalized adjustments to nutritional recommendations, thereby optimizing participant health outcomes.

Including a diabetes-specific formula in a structured nutritional therapy program directly addresses the unique nutritional needs of people with diabetes.

This formula, characterized by low glycemic index carbohydrates, abundance of fiber and high whey protein content, effectively controls carbohydrate intake and aims to stabilize blood sugar levels, being a crucial element during Ramadan fasting.

The results demonstrate a substantial improvement in clinical parameters in type 2 diabetic patients following the structured nutritional therapy program, including a reduction in fasting blood sugar, triglycerides and glycated hemoglobin levels.

By merging a nutritional education program with regular monitoring and the integration of a diabetes-specific formula, a personalized approach to managing type 2 diabetes during Ramadan is achieved
