Abstract

Fasting and feasting are integral part of many religions and cultures. As the amount of food and fluid intake are markedly altered during these phases, patients with diabetes are prone to higher risk of complications. Even though several guidelines for fasting and feasting are available; Indian specific recommendations are the need of the hour, because of the distinct dietary habits and the diet content (high carbohydrate) of Indians. To fill this void, the current guidelines have been developed by experts from India who extensively reviewed the literature, shared their practical knowledge and ultimately arrived at a consensus.
