WHAT IS DIABETES?

Taking responsibility for your health

This website offers both medical and Islamic advice on how to look after your health if you have diabetes. The Quran reminds us that our bodies are an amanah, a trust from Allah, and so we have a duty to take care of our health.

It is important to take responsibility for your health, listening to the information that GPs and nurses provide about medicine, diet, exercise and lifestyle. Working in partnership with Tower Hamlets Primary Care Trust we have provided information from medical staff as well as from respected imams and scholars.
