We’ve all heard the hype about losing weight and controlling our diabetes through intermittent fasting, but does this really work? The benefits of intermittent fasting have been touted for decades, but our understanding of the mechanism of action still leaves room for improvement.
Intermittent fasting, also known as time-restricted feeding, is a diet plan that can help you lose weight and improve your health.
This is a controversial topic, but the latest research on intermittent fasting suggests that fasting may be the healthiest way to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight.
Type 2 diabetes was previously thought to be a chronic, incurable illness. To fight it, you can take medicine, but the drug will follow you for the rest of your life.
We now know better. People concentrate on medicine for type 2 diabetes, but it’s a nutritional disease, according to Dr. Jason Fung.
He and his colleagues sought to show that a comprehensive nutrition management programme may be more effective than medicines. They recently released a study on three individuals with type 2 diabetes who were able to fully stop using insulin and most oral medicines while still improving their diabetes’management.
BMJ: Intermittent fasting as a therapeutic alternative to insulin in individuals with type 2 diabetes How did they pull it off? Intermittent fasting’is a kind of fasting that occurs on a regular basis’The participants fasted for 24 hours three to four times a week, from midday to night, and ate lunch and supper on the other days. They dropped 10% to 18% of their total weight, as well as 10% to 22% of their waist circumference.
But here’s the most incredible part:
Starting with an average daily insulin dosage of 70 units, they were able to safely cease using insulin only five days after beginning the programme, with the longest duration lasting just 18 days. This is a’fantastic outcome!’It’s worth mentioning that the IDM team was keeping a tight eye on them. Fasting when on diabetic medication raises the risk of hypoglycemia, which is a dangerous decrease in blood sugar. As a result, it is advised that you do not do this without the guidance of a qualified health’expert.
Intermittent fasting coupled with a low-carb diet, with the proper strategy, may be the greatest therapy for type 2 diabetes we’ve ever seen.

There’s more terrible news for diabetics.
For inexpensive insulin, some diabetics resort to the underground market.
Is low-carb therapy the most effective treatment for diabetes reversal?
As an insulin-resistant diabetic with 11 years of type 2 diabetes under my belt, I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to proper eating. Most people think that eating a low carb diet will help them lose weight, but that’s far from true. And, contrary to what you may hear, low fat or high carb diets don’t work either. They are just high carbohydrate diets with a few extra “filler” foods thrown in for luck.. Read more about can diabetes be reversed with fasting and let us know what you think.
