5 health problems may arise in Ramadan and how to deal with them
Contrary to the fact that fasting carries many health benefits to the body, but sometimes there may be some health problems as a result of some of the wrong practices pursued by some.
1. Feeling indecisive: This is common after eating breakfast because of decreased blood flow to the brain, where most of the blood goes to the body to the digestive system to start digestion and absorption. In this regard, we recommend that you do not over-eat, split the food into a small opening meal made up of some fluids and vegetables, then go up to the Maghrib prayer and then go back to eat.
2. indigestion: Indigestion arises as a result of eating fatty foods or those containing a high amount of spices and spices. In this regard, we recommend avoiding fatty, fried or high-fat foods and spices. Also, be careful to chew food well, limit as much fluid as possible during Iftar, and keep away from soft drinks that some of us think help digestion , While in fact they cause indigestion. As for the sweets that the Holy Month is blessed, it is best not to eat them after 2 - 3 hours of Iftar, in order to make room for the digestive system to regain some of its health before giving it any new types of food.
3. Constipation Constipation is a health problem that a fasting person may experience as a result of the low level of fluid in the body. In this regard, it is recommended to drink plenty of fluids and to eat fruits and vegetables rich in fiber, and to limit as much as possible beverages such as tea and coffee, as they cause increased urination.
4. Decreased blood sugar level: This may usually occur in the last hours before the breakfast cannon starts, as the fasting person has signs of tiredness accompanied by dizziness and rapid heartbeat. To prevent blood sugar from falling, it is recommended to eat complex sugars (such as potatoes, potatoes, brown bread) in the suhoor meal, ensuring that the blood sugar level is stable for long periods of time. It is also recommended that you avoid sugars (white bread), which is digested in a short time , Causing blood sugar to fall.
5. Painful muscle spasm: These convulsions result from dehydration, or as a result of low levels of some salts in the body (such as calcium, potassium, magnesium salts). In order to avoid these convulsions during the month of Ramadan, it is recommended to drink plenty of fluids, with bananas and dates because of their rich content of potassium and magnesium, and recommended dairy products to give the body what it needs from calcium.
