Lipid Management in Ramadan

Lipid Management in Ramadan

Dyslipidemia is a condition characterized by a high level of lipids in the blood (bad cholesterol named LDL, triglycerides, or both) that requires lifestyle adjustments during fasting.

Dyslipidemia affects the vascular system in different body parts like the heart, brain, and internal organs. A diet rich in sugar or fat, obesity, kidney diseases, PCOS, are some of its causes, where some experience chest and abdominal pain.

Lipid-lowering drugs, regular exercise, and a low-fat diet help in its treatment. While fasting, keep yourself hydrated with water. Consume green salads, whole grains, fresh vegetables. Avoid refined sugars, foods high on salt or fat.

Consult the doctor via our telehealth service when medications cannot control blood pressure, and he will advise if you need to visit the hospital or not.
