PMID:  11191165     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
During Ramadan, adult Muslims fast from dawn to dusk. We frequently encounter young pregnant Muslim women with hyperemesis gravidarum who fast during this holy month. We have investigated whether there is an association between the prolonged fasting during Ramadan and excessive vomiting during pregnancy. Possible psychologic and physiologic explanations are presented and discussed.
