The cause of diabetes mellitus is metabolic in origin. However, its major clinical manifestations, which result in most of the morbidity and mortality, are a result of its vascular pathology.

The American Heart Association has recently stated that, “from the point of view of cardiovascular medicine, it may be appropriate to say, diabetes is a cardiovascular disease” .

But diabetic vascular disease is not limited to just the macrovasculature. Diabetes mellitus also affects the microcirculation with devastating results, including nephropathy, neuropathy, and retinopathy. Diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease in the United States, while diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of new-onset blindness in working-age Americans.

The importance of this post on Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease is evident by the magnitude of the population affected by diabetes mellitus. The impact from a public health perspective is huge and increasing. As the population grows older, more sedentary, and obese, the risk of developing diabetes and its complications will increase.

Epidemiological studies have identified diabetes mellitus as a major independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Over 65% of patients with diabetes mellitus die from a cardiovascular cause. The prognosis of patients with diabetes mellitus who develop overt clinical cardiovascular disease is much worse than those cardiovascular patients free of diabetes mellitus.

It is emphasized that practicing physicians and the paramedical professionals as well as general public intellects must focus on either clinical or basic aspects of diabetes and cardiovascular disease in such a way that an awareness campaign can be started at a large scale from the preventive and therapeutic point of view. Awareness programs should encompass, depending upon the targeted audience, mechanisms and risk factors for diabetic cardiovascular disease, heart in diabetes mellitus, including coronary artery disease and congestive heart failure, the peripheral vascular system including epidemiology, mechanisms, methods of assessment, and treatment of this macrovascular disease . Lastly, the awareness campaigns must also cover the different microvascular effects in individuals with diabetes mellitus, including retinopathy (eye complications in diabetes mellitus), nephropathy (kidney complications in diabetes mellitus) , neuropathy (nervous system complications in diabetes mellitus) , and microcirculation of the diabetic foot.

Among the clinicians, campaign should include cardiologists, general internists, vascular specialists, family physicians, and medical students, along with other interested practitioners and allied health personnel, clinical and basic research scientists. Emphasis should be given to both theoretical and practical aspects.

Fasting is a very familiar practice for all of us generally. But sometimes it varies from the perspective of its main objective as some people fast due to religious purposes, some due to diet or attaining spiritual peace. It also differs from religion to religion like Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism. Its duration and phases fluctuates too. But the common point is that offers a lot of health benefits.

To begin with, it brings harmony, inner peace, and raises our awareness and these characteristics play a major function in stabilizing our mental health and fitness. It provides us with the opportunity to come up for air from our every day lifestyle and confers a possibility for our body to take a pause and gives break to its different organs. Fasting helps out for the accomplishment of abdominal fitness. As it purifies our body from the excessive and contaminated stuff, relaxes digestive tract, filters our intestines, and lightens the stomach by clearing fats. Additionally, it removes toxins from our body and consequently results as detoxification. During fasting as our body is not allowed for the intake of food so it utilizes the fats reserved in our body. These fats are initially the extra carbohydrates and glucose not consumed by human body and then transferred into fats. So for the period of fasting when we draw on these fats for obtaining get-up-and-go ability, chemicals are released from the fatty acids within the internal mechanism. Subsequently, those chemicals are wiped out through different organs and end result is purification of our entire body.

It also possesses anti-cancer perspective as recent research supports this fact that fasting makes the cancer treatment more bearable. The healing tendency is increased and victims put up with chemotherapies in a healthier way. Moreover in the absence of intake of food our body does not give any chance to tumor growth. Fasting also enhances immune system, because, during fast when one is not ingesting food then energy turns away on the way to immune system and metabolism instead of digestive system. It leads to improved protein development and growth hormones. It is also discovered that an anti-aging hormone production is also observed during the period of fasting. Fasting results in the immunoglobulin intensification that leads to the strengthening of immune system.

Fasting covers very promising ways in order to get rid of drugs like heroine, alcohol, nicotine etc. furthermore, it enhances sensory awareness, normalizes blood pressure, re-establishes cell oxygenation, develops insulin sensitivity, and stabilizes nervous system. So we can analyze that it offers huge benefits, this verity is very clearly stated in a Hadith “Fast and be healthy.” (Ibn As-Sunni and Abu Nu΄aym, and As-Suyuti graded it as Hasan.)

But one has to keep in mind that fast does not mean cutting our diet to an extreme. In the same way while breaking our fast, avoid from overeating and initially prefer fruit and vegetables. Certain limitations are there, when one is suffering from severe disease or his/her health conditions are not very compatible then he/she can skip it as clearly stated in the Holy Quran “(Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed number (Should be made up) from days later. For those who can do it (With hardship), is a ransom, the feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more, of his own free will, it is better for him. And it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew.” (2:184). So fasting really helps us in bringing serenity to our lives and accomplishing peaceful health.
