HEATHER ATKINSON TALKS TO US ABOUT INTERMITTENT FASTING AND DIABETES
Having spent most of my adult years in Australia as a Gym owner and Personal trainer I have come to understand the power of Nutrition and the role it plays in long term health. Really looking forward to sharing more with you over the coming months.
There is Evidence-Based Health Benefits of Intermittent Fasting and Diabetes. Intermittent Fasting Can Reduce Insulin Resistance and lower the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes has become incredibly common in recent decades.
Its main feature is high blood sugar levels in the context of insulin resistance. Anything that reduces insulin resistance should help lower blood sugar levels and protect against type 2 diabetes.
Interestingly, intermittent fasting has been shown to have major benefits for insulin resistance and lead to an impressive reduction in blood sugar levels
In human studies on intermittent fasting, fasting blood sugar has been reduced by 3-6%, while fasting insulin has been reduced by 20-31%. One study in diabetic rats also showed that intermittent fasting protected against kidney damage, one of the most severe complications of diabetes.
What this implies, is that intermittent fasting may be highly protective for people who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Bottom Line: Intermittent fasting can reduce insulin resistance and lower blood sugar levels.
Researchers believe that the practice of “cleansing”—a combination of intermittent fasting with herbs and vitamins that support detoxification—provides surprising health benefits.
