Abstract

Aim: we conducted this study to investigate the role of Ramadan fasting on oxidative stress. Materials and method: 23 people (16 male, 7 female) aged between 25 and 65 years were recruited in this study. 10cc Venous blood samples were taken after 8- to 10- hours fasting on 2 different times: a week before Ramadan and at the end of Ramadan (day 27). Portions of the serum samples were used immediately to measure prooxidant-antioxidant balance (PAB). Results: the changes of oxidative stress was not significant in control group. Moreover, these changes also were non-significant in both gender. Oxidative stress was significantly increase in patients with CAD during Ramadan fasting. Conclusion: It seems that Ramadan fasting does not affect oxidative and prooxidant-antioxidant balance meaningfully. However, more studies are required in this field.
