The studywas conducted to observe the effect of intermittent fasting during Ramadan on anthropometric parameters, proteinous compounds and electrolytes during Ramadan fasting in overweight subjects (BMI 25-29.9). The anthropometric parameters, serum proteinous compounds (total proteins, albumin, creatinine and urea) and serum electrolytes levels were analyzed in 30 apparently healthy overweight subjects two days prior to Ramadan fasting and one day after Ramadan. The body weight and BMI was… Expand

TLDR
A non-significant effect of Ramadan fasting was observed on most of the parameters studied, however, serum urea, triglycerides, total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol were reduced significantly. Expand
