Doctors 2015When visiting a doctor in Dubai as an expat sometimes we feel the need of a second opinion, just to reassure ourselves but don’t know where to go.
In America there is a growing service for Modern doctor house calls, which is an online virtual consultation via Skype chat that gives a fast diagnosis. What you do is type in your symptoms, add a credit card number and within a short amount of time a doctor appears on your screen via Skype, looks you over, asks some questions and in minutes makes a diagnosis.

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
