Fasting and diabetes 2015If you are fasting with Diabetes here are some things to consider:

1)   People with diabetes need to go on a special diet during Ramadan

Myth! The good news is if you are already following a balanced diet, as is recommended for everyone, living with Type 2 diabetes or not, then there is a big chance that you do not have to change the ingredients of your diet. In fact you should eat as you normally do, with the only difference being the time you eat your meals, rather than quantity or type of food consumed.

It is very important that anyone living with Type 1 diabetes understands that they are at a higher risk compared to those with Type 2 diabetes when fasting during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

In general, people living with Type 1 diabe­tes are strongly advised to not fast during Ramadan.

Anyone living with diabetes should consult their doctor before deciding to fast. Read more

Dentists in Dubai are plentiful. Just take a drive along Jumeirah Beach Road and you will witness building after building with sign boards advertising clinics with dentists, and orthodontists. The best way of finding a dentist in this town is by recommendation from friends and work colleagues. Prices vary a lot so it is best to shop around. The most expensive is not necessarily the best it may just be that they are having to pay very high rents for their location.

The other day I had to call the maintenance to investigate a water leak.  When they arrived we all walked into that part of the garden one never really explores – the area with old rusty bits of gardening tools, plant containers dried out pieces of piping left over from the irrigation and …the water tank.  As we unscrewed the top of the water tank I was horrified to see how much dirt and sand was lying at the bottom and then it hit me – this is the water my family is cooking and cleaning with.  We may drink bottled water Read more
