Abstract Aims Flash glucose monitoring (FGM)-derived markers of glucose control and variability and laboratory measured HbA1c among patients with diabetes on insulin in context of Ramadan fasting (RF) were examined and compared. Methods FGM data on insulin-treated patients (n = 20, age 42.3 ± 11.4 years; 18 male, 2 female; 13 with type 1 and 7 with type 2 diabetes) who fasted during Ramadan were used to calculate Q-score as an indicator of glycaemia before, during and after RF. Post-hoc analysis...

The proportions of participants achieving weight loss of ≥5%, ≥10% and ≥15% at 16 weeks were 60%, 23% and 6%. Methods: Retrospective review of clinical data from a cohort of patients treated at ICLDC in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, UAE. Inclusi...
