Question: Assalam Alaikum ,

Although Glucose drips are injected through the arm or bloodstream it still provides nourishment. Would insulin injections nullify the fast?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

Injections do not invalidate the fast, irrespective of the substance they contain.

A drip takes the same ruling. The entrance of something through a recognized entry point invalidates the fast.

Please see: The Complete Guide to Fasting and: “Principles on What Invalidates the Fast”

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,
