In a recent Petter Attia podcast, he interviewed Jason Fung and discussed the fasting, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes. Highlights that "We think of all these responses, obesity, insulin resistance, and the beta-cell failure, as pathologic. They're actually protective...Your body is actually trying to protect itself against the root cause of the problem which is too much insulin, too much glucose." — Jason Fung
I really recommend lessoning if you or people you care about have T2D, it actually blew my mind and reshaped my understanding of insulin resistance.
He is about to try daily NAD+ and Resveratrol. I am wondering what the potential is for his kidneys.
i an wondering if fasting is an option for diabetics, or diabetics with kidney failure. if not then taking the molecules that mimic it can be a life saver.
Resveratrol 400mg since June 2019; 600mg since October 1; 800mg since January 2020
NMN Sublingual 250mg since june 2019 500mg since September 2019
NAD+ Nasal, appx 100mg per day since September 2019; 200mg per day beginning mid November
I would contact Jason Fung MD, kidney specialist who prescribes fasting. It may even regenerate kidney cells and make your friend regain some function. But he must work with an MD on this.
