FKIK Unismuh – As a form of gratitude for the achievement of A accreditation for the Bachelor of Medicine Study Program and the Doctor Professional Study Program, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FKIK) of Universitas Muhammadiyah (Unismuh) Makassar held a Tasyakuran as well as breaking the fast together, which was coupled with scientific studies.

The event was held at the Unismuh Medical Faculty Hall, Jl. Sultan Alauddin, Friday, April 22, 2022.

Scientific Studies presented by: (i) Prof dr Andi Husni Tanra, Ph.D, SpAn-KMN, Professor and Lecturer of Unismuh Medicine, with the topic “Fasting and Autophagy Biomechanism”; and (ii) Prof DR Dr Suryani As’ad, M.Sc, Sp.GK (K), Professor and Dean of FKIK Unismuh Makassar, with the topic “Fasting and Ketogenic Diet”.

Andi Husni Tanra is an Anesthesiologist who graduated from Japan, and is recorded as the first Indonesian doctor to study and obtain a PhD in Medicine in Japan.

The event was attended by the Rector of Unismuh Prof. Ambo Asse, Vice Rector I Dr. Ir Abd Rakhim Nanda, Vice Rector III Dr. Muhammad Tahir, Director of Ma’had Al Birr KH Lukman Abdul Samad, Lc, Dean of FKIK Prof. Dr. Suryani As’ad, MSc, Sp.GK (K), all Vice Deans, Heads of Study Programs, lecturers, employees and heads of student organizations and alumni of FKIK Unismuh.

Prof. Husni Tanra explained the benefits of fasting for human health. It is said that fasting people as done in the month of Ramadan are not susceptible to illness. Even people who are diligent in fasting such as Monday-Thursday fasting, are not susceptible to cancer because fasting activities can increase the body’s immunity.

Fasting, said Andi Husni Tanra, can trigger Autophagy. Autophagy is a self-cleaning mechanism that occurs when the body fasts like in Ramadan.

“There are trillions of cells that make up the human body and over time residual molecules formed from cell metabolism can accumulate in cells and cause cell damage and those that are damaged are no longer needed and need to be disposed of,” said Prof. Andi Husni Tanra.

According to him, the Autophagy mechanism is the body’s way to cleanse itself of old and damaged cells so that it can form new, healthier cells.

Prof. Husni Tanra cited the results of research by Andrea Wider, a nutritionist from the United States who examined the benefits of fasting for a month of Ramadan. The results of his research, the first ten days of fasting can renew 10 percent of the body’s cells enter the grace phase.

The second ten days of fasting can renew 66 percent of body cells and this enters the maqfirah phase (forgiveness). Furthermore, the third 10 days of fasting can renew 100 percent of these body cells enter the phase free from hellfire.

“People fasting for a month of Ramadan immunity increases 10 times,” said Prof. Andi Husni Tanra.

Complementing Prof. Andi Husni Tanra’s presentation, Dean of FKIK Unismuh Prof. Suryani As’ad said that food is recommended according to Islamic teachings, such as fat, sufficient protein, and reduced carbohydrates and eat lots of fruit. Prof. Suriani also suggested many foods that contain high protein such as dates.

Meanwhile, the Rector of Unismuh, Prof. Ambo Asse, expressed his gratitude and congratulations on the achievement of accreditation A of the Bachelor of Medicine Study Program and the FKIK Unismuh Doctor Professional Study Program.

According to Prof. Ambo Asse, what has been achieved is not the last, but only at the starting point for further progress. The progress to be aspired to is certainly moving from the value achieved at this time, so that it can already think of giving birth to specialist studies.

Likewise, the Nursing Study Program and Midwifery Study Program can be upgraded to S1 and profession. This achievement, said Ambo Asse, was due to strong commitment and deep sincerity. (Unismuh Public Relations)
