Qatar Diabetes Association (QDA) recently played host to the 16th annual Al Bawasil International Camp for children with diabetes.
For the QF Community, the Holy Month of Ramadan was a blessed time for followers of Islam to re-evaluate their lives in the light of Islamic guidance. Yet each year the ninth month of the Islamic calendar can also be a physical challenge for some.
The course included many sessions relating to ‘type 1‘ diabetes, the insulin system and its types, and how to adjust insulin dose. There were other sessions that raised issues about high and low blood sugar and how to handle such cases at schools.
