Is it safe to Fast if someone has type 2 diabetes?

Recommended Posts

Depends on how bad they are diabetic.  If they are on insulin, that's probably pretty advanced T2 diabetes.  You should check with your doctor, but fasting could actually benefit people with mild type 2 diabetes by increasing insulin sensitivity and keeping blood sugar low.  But this needs to be combined with a healthy diet.

It's better for that person to fast, no matter how sick (s)he is.

وَأَنْ تَصُومُوا خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ

If somebody asks: can they die? The answer is: Yes, they can, but they can die if they don't fast too. We don't know how and why we'll die. Allah swt is The Healer and we'll all back to Him.

The other question is: what is fasting and when we have to fast?

Allah swt knows best.

Can a person with type 2 diabetes perform fasting, is it safe to do so?

thank you!

"Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 184:

أَيَّامًا مَّعْدُودَاتٍ فَمَن كَانَ مِنكُم مَّرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَىٰ سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ وَعَلَى الَّذِينَ يُطِيقُونَهُ فِدْيَةٌ طَعَامُ مِسْكِينٍ فَمَن تَطَوَّعَ خَيْرًا فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُ وَأَن تَصُومُوا خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

For a certain number of days; but whoever among you is sick or on a journey, then (he shall fast) a (like) number of other days; and those who are not able to do it may effect a redemption by feeding a poor man; so whoever does good spontaneously it is better for him; and that you fast is better for you if you know."

Talk to your doctor about this matter. The patient can decide himself too whether he can do it or not. Diabetic is a sensitive case, excessive urination may increase the severity of thirst in some patients. If the patient willing to avoid fasting because of this medical problem, he can do it & chose to feed a poor man for 30 days. This relaxation is also prescribed by Allah.
