Management of Type-2 Diabetic Patients Treated With Insulin During the Ramadan
Management of Type-2 Diabetic Patients Treated With Insulin During the Ramadan An Interventional, Community Based, Comparative Study

Fasting during the Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam and is a mandatory duty for all healthy adult Muslims. Fasting is considered safe in young healthy subjects but it can induce harmful effects and complications in patients with diabetes. Several studies have demonstrated that patients with type 2 diabetes are prone to hypo and hyper glycemia during fasting. When treating diabetic patients with a treatment guideline the rate of these complications can be reduced. Little data is available on patients with type 2 diabetes treated with insulin. The investigators therefore propose to assess the effect of a protocol containing detemir (levemir) and a premix of insulin aspart (NovoMix70) on glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes during the Ramadan and to compare this regimen to the standard care patients receive during this period. The investigators assume that patients receiving the intervention will have better glucose control during the Ramadan compared to patients receiving the standard care. As approximately 45 million Muslims suffer from type 2 diabetes and most of them fast during the Ramadan the results of this intervention may be significant and may improve the care of these patients allowing Muslims to respect their religious obligations without compromising their health.

Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Diabetes Type 2
  • Treatment During Ramadan
  • Drug: Insulin treatment during Ramadan
    Insulin analogs will be used: Levemir and NovoMix70. The daily insulin dose will be calculated as follows: Sixty percent of the total daily dose will be used as the beginning daily dose at the first day of fasting. Sixty percent of the daily dose will be given as NovoMix70 before the Eftar (the main meal in the evening that breaks the fast). Forty percent of the amount will be given as Levemir (Early in the morning before the beginning of fasting.
  • Drug: Standard of care
    Standard of care during Ramadan according to physicians decision
  • Active Comparator: Insulin treatment during Ramadan
