    • Abstract:
      This article presents answers to questions related to diabetic controlin Ramadan, cramps, and BMI and the Pill. There are many causes of night cramps in the legs, including vascular insufficiency and electrolyte imbalance. Quinine may be helpful, although many weeks of regular treatment may be needed for the best effect. A More data has accumulated recently on the risk of venous thromboembolism in women on the combined Pill. When patients have reasonable diabetic control, it is better to try to make the diabetes fit around the fast. Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which has a 12-month lunar cycle. This means that the month changes from year to year. In the winter, the fast lasts around 12 hours, in the summer, it can be as long as 18 hours.
