Diabetic, insulin and fast

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I am insulin dependent diabetic person. Last Ramadan I missed 7 sawm which I kept as ‘qaza’ now. This year Ramadan is in May-June. My questions are (1) Can I avoid keeping ‘sawm’ during the Ramadan taking into my physical condition?
(2) Taking insulin 15-30 minutes before Iftar is allowed under Islam or not?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 597/479/D=7/1438)

It is allowable to have injection during fast, it does not invalidate the fast. Since insulin is a kind of injection thus you may take it in the state of fasting if needed, your fast shall not break.
