Blood pressure, diabetes common during Ramadan

KUWAIT: Cases of fluctuating blood pressure and diabetes have increased during the Holy Month of Ramadan of last year and this same scenario might repeat itself this year, said a medial official yesterday.

Executive at the Ministry of Health Dr Abeer Al-Bahho said that a ministry study showed that bad eating habits were the main cause for the increase of such ailments especially during the advent of Ramadan. Good eating habits, exercising, and practicing self-restrain are keys to combat the expected increase of such diseases, the doctor said, affirming that the ministry will do its part to provide health tips. — KUNA
