Our expert says:
I presume that you are participating in Ramadan? The reason why you are feeling tired and run down is probably not due to a lack of nutrients like vitamins and minerals, but because your blood sugar drops to such low levels because of the lack of food, that it makes you feel limp and faint. If you continue feeling so weak and tired, I would recommend that you have your medical dr test your blood sugar and insulin levels to see if you suffer from hypoglycaemia or insulin resistance. If this should be the case then it you may require a dispensation from your religious authority not to fast so strictly during Ramadan. Getting up at 4:30 am will also make you feel exhausted unless you go to bed very early.
Wishing you well over the fast.
