According to the consultant gastroenterologist at Aster Hospital Mankhool, Dr Amal Premchandra Upadhyay, Gastrointestinal problems tend to be more common and severe in people with diabetes.
Dyspeptic symptoms are usually experienced during Ramadan including GERD, indigestion, bloating and heartburns especially after eating too much at lftar or Suhoor meals.
Avoid greasy, spicy and acidic foods because they irritate stomach.
Stomach ulcers occur when the thick layer of mucus that protects the stomach from digestive juices is damaged. The most common symptom is a burning sensation or pain in the area between your chest and belly button.
So do not sleep straight away after Suhoor as this can result in acid reflux and try to eat in smaller portions after iftar.
