Abstract
This guidance is an update to the South Asian Consensus Guideline: Use of Insulin in Diabetes during Ramadan, published in the Indian Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism in 2012. A five country working group has collated evidence and experience to suggest guidelines for the safe and rational use of insulin degludec (IDeg) and insulin degludec aspart (IDegAsp) during Ramadan. The suggestions contained herewith are based on the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics properties of these novel insulins.

Key words: Aspart, Degludec, Degludec aspart, Diabetes, Hypoglycaemia, Insulin, Ramadan
