Core Tip Intermittent fasting regimens emerged as effective therapeutic strategies not only to improve general health but also as evidence-based treatment for certain diseases. Ramadan fasting, which is a religious fasting for Muslims, is a dry intermittent fasting that was evaluated among patients with different hepatic diseases. It was a promising intervention for patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, however, its deleterious effect on patients with advanced cirrhosis necessitates its prohibition for this category of patients. Liver transplant recipients can observe this type of fasting provided certain modifications and instructions are followed.
