Reversing T2 with IF ?
« on: October 09, 2018, 07:51:36 PM »
These researchers say they reversed Type 2 Diabetes in “3” patients with Intermittent Fasting. Is is right / possible to make a statement such as that with only 3 patients ?

I think it's really not very scientific. They know dⒶmn well that isn't enough testing to prove anything, and yet they want to get their names in the headlines, and that will do it. Very sneaky . . .

No, I don't know how they can publish a test of 3 people as a study.  I know  Jason Fung has been a big advocate of intermittent fasting as a cure all for diabetes for a long time.  It does suggest that it may be of value but doesn't prove anything.

I'm with Wally and Shanny! No way is 3 subjects worthy of the title "study". Just looking for their 15 minutes of fame.

I know Dr Fung and Jimmy Moore are really pushing IF but it isn't a "cure". Yes it my help but that is about it...
