For type 2 diabetes, intermittent vs. continuous energy restriction yields similar glycemic improvements

Peter M. Clifton
Adults with type 2 diabetes and obesity randomly assigned to an intermittent fasting intervention or continuous energy restriction experienced similar decreases in HbA1c over 12 months, according to findings published in JAMA Network Open.
“The results demonstrated that a 2-day intermittent energy restriction diet is comparable to a continuous energy restriction diet for improvements in glycemic control, confirming our pilot data,” Peter M. Clifton, MD, PhD, of the School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences at the University of South Australia, and colleagues wrote.
