      <Abstract>The guidelines about Ramadan fasting and diseases are not only rare but also not powerful because they express experts opinions more than study results with evidence based medicine. In our opinion, ten parameters have to be respected in the profile of enrolled subjects in such studies: age, gender, ethnicity, number and timing of meals, quantity and quality of food, duration and timing of sleep, physical activity (Taraweeh), addictions (tobacco, alcohol, coffee, laptop, phone...),nature and rhythm of job, morbidity. For the methodology, our ten parameters are: fasting duration, the climate (hydration), the size of the group of patients, the study design (randomization, observational study or Cohort study), whether the study is mono or multi-centric, the timing and period of taking blood samples, the methods of analysis (central laboratory) and the existence of structured education.&#13;
Finally, our global propositions are also ten recommendations about Ramadan and health: the creation of an international committee, an E-Library, ideal design projects, multi-centric studies, analysis of psychological, social and religious aspects without forgetting the role of patients, organization of annual meetings about Ramadan and health, publications and finally collaboration with preachers, pharmaceutical firms and mass Media</Abstract>
