Does Intermittent Fasting Have a Role in Type 2 Diabetes Treatment?

In a recent experiment, 20 of 36 type 2 diabetics who engaged in three months of intermittent fasting—restricting eating to a limited window each day or not eating one or two days a week, for example—reported a complete remission of type 2 diabetes with many of the remaining patients able to reduce their medication use to manage their blood sugar levels. The findings suggest that intermittent fasting may have a role to play in type 2 diabetes management; however, patients should consult with their doctor before making a change to their diet.
