In the first place can a diabetic could be exempted from fasting during the month of Ramadan. Now, this needs to be determined by consulting a trustworthy doctor or physician. So, it is upon an individual who is suffering from diabetes to consult a trustworthy doctor or physician and find out as to whether it would be safe to fast during the month of Ramadan. Now, if it is deemed as being harmful for this individual to fast during the month of Ramadan, then this individual will not have to fast the month of Ramadan and all he or she has to do is to feed one per person for each day of the month of Ramadan. So, in terms of how this is applied, after every single day, during the month
