As the believers enter the fast of Ramadan with fasting, they should pay attention to their health according to the change in their lifestyle. Fasting should be utilized in all its senses by giving up food and drinks from dawn to dusk and purifying the mind and body. The health maxim of eat less live more is meaningless during this period. Dietary restriction is best during fasting. But people with diseases like diabetes, hypertension, acidity, ulcers, asthma and migraine should be careful. If such patients are fasting, they should see their regular doctor for advice. Fasting during the early months of pregnancy does not cause any health problems, but pregnant women should consult a doctor.      ——————  Hiba Asia Medical Group

Care must be taken to restrict food intake during Ramadan. Eating for eighteen hours and eating for five hours is not good for the body. The body absorbs energy from food within eight hours. It is only after that that the body actually comes into a state of fasting. During fasting, the body first uses glucose stored in the muscles and liver. After this, energy is taken from body fat. Then the energy is taken from the protein. It is only taken from protein after fasting for several days. This condition is unhealthy. But it is important that you don’t have to take food from protein during the fasting period from dawn to dusk. Therefore, the fasting period can be considered as the best opportunity to lose fat .  ——————  Hiba Asia Medical Group


Diabetics should be careful about this. Diabetics should consult their doctor before fasting. The medication and diet they take is very important in this regard. Patients were divided into three groups according to the severity of the disease. Those in the very high risk and high risk category should pay special attention to this. They should talk to the doctor and strictly follow their advice. People with severe diabetes should not fast. Or it should be based on the expert advice of the doctor. Remember that diabetes does not go away during fasting. Stopping medication can be dangerous. Depending on the doctor’s instructions, the time, dosage, etc. of the medicine can be changed.        ——————  Hiba Asia Medical Group

What is a heart attack?

A heart attack, also called a myocardial infarction, happens when a part of the heart muscle doesn’t get enough blood.

The more time that passes without treatment to restore blood flow, the greater the damage to the heart muscle.

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the main cause of heart attack. A less common cause is a severe spasm, or sudden contraction, of a coronary artery that can stop blood flow to the heart muscle.

What are the symptoms of heart attack?

The major symptoms of a heart attack are

  • Chest pain or discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center or left side of the chest that lasts for more than a few minutes or that goes away and comes back. The discomfort can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain.
  • Feeling weak, light-headed, or faint. You may also break out into a cold sweat.
  • Pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck, or back.
  • Pain or discomfort in one or both arms or shoulders.
  • Shortness of breath. This often comes along with chest discomfort, but shortness of breath also can happen before chest discomfort.

What are the risk factors for heart attack?

Several health conditions, your lifestyle, and your age and family history can increase your risk for heart disease and heart attack. These are called risk factors. About half of all Americans have at least one of the three key risk factors for heart disease: high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and smoking.2

Some risk factors cannot be controlled, such as your age or family history. But you can take steps to lower your risk by changing the factors you can control.

What can I do to recover after a heart attack?

If you’ve had a heart attack, your heart may be damaged. This could affect your heart’s rhythm and its ability to pump blood to the rest of the body. You may also be at risk for another heart attack or conditions such as stroke, kidney disorders, and peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

You can lower your chances of having future health problems following a heart attack with these steps:

  • Physical activity—Talk with your health care team about the things you do each day in your life and work. Your doctor may want you to limit work, travel, or sexual activity for some time after a heart attack.
  • Lifestyle changes—Eating a healthier diet, increasing physical activity, quitting smoking, and managing stress—in addition to taking prescribed medicines—can help improve your heart health and quality of life. Ask your health care team about attending a program called cardiac rehabilitation to help you make these lifestyle changes.
  • Cardiac rehabilitationCardiac rehabilitation is an important program for anyone recovering from a heart attack, heart failure, or other heart problem that required surgery or medical care. Cardiac rehab is a supervised program that includes
    • Physical activity
    • Education about healthy living, including healthy eating, taking medicine as prescribed, and ways to help you quit smoking
    • Counseling to find ways to relieve stress and improve mental health

A team of people may help you through cardiac rehab, including your health care team, exercise and nutrition specialists, physical therapists, and counselors or mental health professionals.
