While Muslims across the world look forward to fasting during the holy month of Ramadan, elderly people (60 years and above) are often in a fix on whether or not to observe fast. We spoke to some experts in the medical field to guide the elderly Muslims for fasting this month.



Meanwhile those in a good health with no major health issues can observe fast. However, elderly people who are underweight with chronic illness are advised to avoid fasting. Frail and weak elderly patients who fast can be at the risk of complications like hypoglycaemia, hyperglycaemia besides metabolic decomposition.

Should Elderly fast during Ramzan?

Doctors say "Elderly who are not generally healthy should discuss with their physician before they attempt fasting. This is more important for those who are suffering from lifestyle disease like diabetes, hypertension and thyroid". Usually dehydration is one of the most serious problems for the elderly caused by their lack of the sense of thirst and consequently the lack of drinking water. The elderly should drink water and fluids in abundance and at frequent intervals after breaking the fast.
