Diabetes and Hajj

All you need to know about diabetes including its signs, causes, risk factors, complications and tips to manage the condition.

Every year, during the month of ZelHajjeh, around two and a half million pilgrims make their way to the holy destination of Mecca in Saudi Arabia for Hajj. Whilst this is an extremely important and spiritual time, you must be well-prepared for what you may experience, to ensure your Hajj runs as smoothly as possible.

Ways to a healthy Hajj when you have diabetes

Diabetes management, which depends on an established stable routine, may be affected during Hajj due to changes in your levels of physical activity (walking and standing for long periods), diet and meal times. People with diabetes are more likely to get infections, become dehydrated, develop heat stroke, but may also develop problems related to their diabetes, such as low or high blood glucose levels and foot problems.
