Patients cautioned against over-eating | The Express Tribune



Dean Institute of Public Health Professor Dr Zarfishan Tahir urged patients suffering from high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stomach and liver diseases to avoid fried food, pakoras, samosas, spicy dishes and cold drinks during Ramazan.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, she advised patients to be careful when consuming meat, as excessive eating can lead to an increase in cholesterol, uric acid, blood pressure and sugar. She further said that symptoms in liver and stomach patients can also increase which could be harmful to their health.

Dr Tahir added that Ramazan is the month of earning more good deeds and rewards, not eating more and more. She said that the Institute of Public Health considers that promoting public health and raising awareness among people is its responsibility, so that people can protect their health both in Ramazan and throughout the year.
