Type of fasting diet can reduce symptoms of diabetes, says study

Posted on: 27/Feb/2017 5:00:55 PM
A new study conducted by researchers from the University of Southern California has said that a type of fasting diet may reprogramme pancreas cells, promote the growth of new insulin-producing pancreatic cells and reduce symptoms of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
 
In the study, mice were placed on fasting mimicking diet (FMD) for four days each week which showed remarkable reversal of diabetes. Researchers also examined pancreatic cell cultures from human donors and found that, in cells from Type 1 diabetes patients, nutrients mimicking fasting also increased expression of the Ngn3 protein and insulin production.
 
Say the researchers, These findings warrant a larger FDA trial on the use of the Fasting Mimicking Diet to treat diabetes patients. People with diabetes could one day be treated with an FDA-approved Fasting Mimicking Diet for a few days each month, eat a normal diet for the rest of the month, and see positive results in their ability to control their blood sugar by producing normal levels of insulin and improving insulin function.
