Intermittent Fasting, under medical guidance and with a low-carb diet, can be used to bring down blood insulin levels.
Intermittent fasting (IF) is gaining acceptance in the medical community. What is IF? It’s a self-imposed time window on how many hours we fast versus feast. Last week, the esteemed British Medical Journal published the headline “Myth exploded” featuring a case report on IF as an insulin alternative in Type 2 diabetes. Since June, I have been medically supervising IF for Type 2 diabetes.
Although this form of diabetes has been typically considered a problem of too much blood sugar, it actually starts much before that as a problem of too much insulin. What kind of lifestyle causes too much insulin? One that is high in carbohydrates, sedentary, stressful and deprived of good sleep.
