Low protein levels can be corrected through diet to a certain extent but since your requirements are usually high being in the second trimester, they need additional supplementation. I think it is permitted for pregnant women not to fast during the religious month. In your condition fasting is not advisable as it is definitely going to affect your serum protein levels. Kindly take advice from your doctor before you proceed further. Wish you good health.
