    what about type 2 diabetics that don't eat in time and their insulin drops too much and they go into hypoglycemic state? A family member lost weight, had type 2 but his insulin dropped too much if he didn't eat in time or at times randomly. I like intermittent fasting personally but was just curious about that when I think back.

    Dr Fung, Dr Berg, Keto, get rid of all sugar and sugar making carbs. The body can only have 1 teaspoon of sugar in the blood, but we flood our bodies with 13 pounds or more of sugar per year and the pancreas/thyroid canโ€™t keep up and generates insulin resistance, and the body then stores the sugars as fat and the body canโ€™t lose weight no matter how much you exercise. Have to go Keto with intermittent fasting and the fat melts off, the insulin resistance leaves, and the body can heal itself because the liver then clears itself. Fix your diet!!

  • Tom Chesney

    It may be just the wording of what the doctor is saying but diabetes is not curable. The symptoms of diabetes is reversible. Good diet and exercise can get you off all medicine. But you do still have diabetes and if you quit your diet and quit exercising your blood sugar/insulin resistance will immediately return to unsafe levels requiring medication once again. Go back on the diet and exercise and the symptoms will go away again.
    IF you no longer had diabetes it would take months, if not years, again for the insulin resistance to re-emerge and blood sugars climb.
    Diet, exercise and fasting is probably the best way to reverse the symptoms of diabetes and of course the benefits of being in shape and a good diet go beyond just diabetes.

    As A diabetic of 10 yrs who couldnโ€™t get my sugars under control – even when they quadrupled my meds I remained at 250 fasting. I will say this: 6 months ago I started a super low carb ….calories were from 5% net carbs, 25% protein and 70% good fat diet (keto) along with light fasting periods of 12-16 hrs a couple times a week. I did lose 30lbs, my blood sugars are now completely normal with NO PRESCRIPTIONS. After 10 yrs with no real control!!! So, Iโ€™m happy to agree with Dr. Jason Fung . What heโ€™s saying is exactly true in my case, as well as others I know too. Itโ€™s a DIETARY disease for sure!

  • C. Bell

    This information is priceless and it's a fact. I was diagnosed prediabetic and I was cured in 2 weeks of no sugar, low carbs, exercise. It wasn't stressful at all. I'd rather take care of myself than be on medication for the rest of my life.

  • Noami Hylton

    very interesting Dr

  • play spade

    How can I fast a type 2? If I don't eat my sugar goes down. Fasting about 80-90. A1c 4.3-5.3 . 5ft 9" about 180 lbs.when I fast overnight I'm hungry early and has to eat. Or my sugar goes down I get confused. It happens I believe Jesus is still the healer. He will heal everyone who believes.

    It is interesting how most people can boll with facts!Fasting made by all religion!Sure but mostly for when you are hungry than you are more easier can be manipulated.I shouldnt call Ramadan for a fasting cure just the opposite!First of all you are do not drinking ewvery day during a month butafter sunset people are eating more than their calorineed so people gaining weight instead of loosing it!Their are more flaws but he is a doctor:-)

  • citizen of Cananda From

    Is this dangerous if you are on metforman and insulin when you try this? Iโ€™m not but my sister is what he is saying makes sense but my sister is scared and I am too for her to try it. Doctors DONT like to venture into โ€œ untaughtโ€ areas which leaves a health care system crippled by very individuals put in place to help, itโ€™s sad but true. My sisters diabetes is getting progressively worse and I am very worried for her. Please please let me know if this is something she could try if her doctor wonโ€™t sign off on it. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Keto Steveo

    Awesome video! My view is many doctors either don't know, or they're in with the big pharma's for the money. My endo had me on the food pyramid and 180 carbs per day…just started keto 2 weeks ago with intermittent fasting after 3 days in the hospital with ketoacidosis. Feel great and insulin down from 75 to 20u per day. Can't wait to see my endo next week and show him my results so far…

    God protect this Doctor from threats. He spreads the truth a knowledge saving thousands of lifeโ€™s! I am one! My sugar was 355 when I found out I was diabetic. Within a week of strict fasting with a 4hr window of eating my sugar was 73! It went down to 63 so I had to tweak my meal and time of fasting! However, his methods are effective. Iโ€™m also dropping pounds! Feeling more energetic and alert! Iโ€™m so humbled and thankful for stumbling upon such a genuine soul.

  • VIC MEL

    THE GREATEST TROUBLE WITH MEDICAL WORLD ARE DOCTORS WHO LOVED TELLING HALF TRUTH STORIES !!!!!!
    THEY HAVE THIS LAZY ATTITUDE NOT TO EXPLAIN PROPERLY TO THEIR PATIENTS !!!!!!!
    THEY TREATED SYMPTOMS MORE …..THAN GOING TO THE ACTUAL PROBLEM OR ROOT CAUSE OF THE DISEASE.
    SO WHAT YOU HAVE…..ARE VERY VERY WORRIED PATIENTS GOING DOCTOR HOPPING FROM ONE DOCTOR TO ANOTHER TILL THEY FIND THE RIGHT DOCTOR WHO REALLY CARE FOR THEM AND EXPLAIN IN GREATER DETAILS ONCE AND FOR ALL !!!!!!
    MANY PATIENTS ARE NOT KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THEIR DISEASES……AND CONTINUE TO BE IGNORANT !!!!!
    ARE THESE THEIR FAULTS ?????
    CERTAINLY NOT !!!!!!!!
    BUT DOCTORS TEND TO BE VERY DEFENSIVE…..NOT WILLING TO SHARE MORE …..ALWAYS IN GREAT HURRY TO GO SOMEWHERE !!!!
    MANY PEOPLE INCLUDING PATIENTS REALISED THIS STRANGE BEHAVIOUR OF DOCTORS NOWADAYS !!!!!
    THE WORSE PART IS THEY CHARGE VERY EXPENSIVELY BUT SPENT VERY FEW MINUTES OF THEIR TIME WITH PATIENTS !!!!
    IS THIS BEEN FAIR TO PATIENTS WHO ARE VERY WORRIED PEOPLE WHO TRAVEL GREAT DISTANCE TO CONSULT DOCTORS????
    THIS VERY IRRITATING BEHAVIOUR OF DOCTORS …..ARE MAKING PEOPLE AND PATIENTS PISSING OFF AT THEIR DOCTOR VERY BAD ATTITUDE !!!!!!!!!!
    MANY PATIENTS ARE NOW SEEKING HOMEOPATHIC DOCTORS ……WITH DIFFERENT APPROACH TOWARDS DISEASES !!!!!!!
    PEOPLE HAVE NO PATIENCE ANYMORE ……TOWARDS CONVENTIONAL DOCTORS WHO ARE INEFFECTIVE , UNCARING AND AT TIMES SO MONEY FACE CHARGING EXPENSIVELY !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    From the 1960's when 'hippies' went back to the land to teach their own children SAFELY, grow their own food SAFELY and even to the point of making their own homes, clothing and music; WHAT HAPPENED??? Diabetes is also triggered by great loss, grief, fear as well as compromising food habits. 60 years ago life for us was BLISS….look at the world NOW.

  • Olympia Dudley

    Thank you Dr. Fung! I reversed my type 2 diabetes in 10 months from 7.9 to 5.5 (5.3 with my newest test) by following your intermittent fasting protocol. I chose to do the daily 16:8 and only stuck to low carb the first two weeks, but the daily 16:8 worked just fine on its own. I also ate and drank things no diabetic has any business having. It just doesnโ€™t seem to matter much what I eat, as long as I get in 16 hours of clean fasting each day. So Iโ€™m proof it works even if people wonโ€™t change their diets. The low carb in the beginning did help to reduce how much sugar I was eating once I reintroduced refined carbs back into my diet, so I tell people to stick with that as long as they can. I see my doctor this week to discuss when to reduce the victoza Iโ€™ve been on. He and the dietician he sent me to have been thrilled with my progress. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and inflammation are now all normal too.

    I didnโ€™t learn about intermittent fasting in time to save my dad or my uncle, but I tell everyone I can how it saved me and how it can save them too!

  • Daniel Ripple

    I was diagnosed with T2 a year ago due to pancreatitis and like everyone else, was prescribed insulin. After getting a 'great job at lowering your A1C' from the dr, I disagreed. "Yea, my A1c is lowered but that's only because you're giving me a ton of insulin. It's a false positive." Weight gain began. More insulin. Never ending battle. I had enough. While continuing to test the BS, I stopped all insulin immediately, cut carbs down to 5-8 a day max. All of this before even knowing about fasting as it relates to BS. Never even heard of this Diet Doctor either. now, my BS is normal. No spikes or drops. Stays pretty constant at 80-120. Weight dropped back to normal. I haven't been given the "ok, so you absolutely reversed diabetes' from the Dr. yet but it's coming. ๐Ÿ™‚ So, from first hand experience, he's absolutely 100% right.

    I have implemented intermittent fasting and keto – as a result of Dr Fung's video's and his book on fasting. I had a A1C of 10 in 2015……it has been under 6 since 2017 and my health is better than it was for the last decade….I am 55 in May 2020…..the program works.

  • Smarty Pants

    But what if, the person is not over weight but still diabetics… rather he is underweight… then fasting wonโ€™t help ? Itโ€™s genetic then how we can overcome it

    My father was borderline type 2 forever when he got in his seventies losing weight and exercising didn't work anymore.
    He quit eating wheat and BOOM ,problem solved .

  • Gina B

    I totally agree with this video. The only think I wish is that Dr Fung had been a little more clear (or repetitive) that ALL carbs convert to sugar in the body – instead of just saying cut out the "sugar." I am helping my dad deal with type 2 diabetes and he has cut out the "sugar" in his diet but still thinks that fruit is good for you – so he eats too many grapes or cantaloupe or watermelon and his blood sugar goes too high. It needs to be repeated over and over – sugar = carbs = not just sweets but bread, crackers, rice, quinoa, oatmeal, fruit, etc., etc., etc. Things that people are "healthy" are not necessarily healthy for a person with diabetes.

    We must protect this man! I swear, i hate going in for check ups. They do the same thing, tell me the same thing and charge me $500 each visit! This man just told me how to cure myself without charging me!

  • John William

    I now fast for 16 to 18 hours a day and limit my eating to about a 6 hour window with salads for a part of it and often a fairly normal meal afterwards. My weight has dropped and my sugar has come way down. This has been a godsend after 20 years. I have only done this for a couple of weeks but the results have been amazing.

    Dr. Jason Fung and Cole Robinson (the Snake Diet guy) I give almost sole credit for finally losing the extra 50lbs I was carrying for so many years and turning my life around. These men are heroes as far as I'm concerned. F*ck the medical community for condemning these men who are actually helping people.

    I am not diabetic, but listening to Dr. Jason Fung I decided to try fasting since I need to lose weight. So far in two weeks I have lost 4 pounds. I have 36 to go, but it is a start and I don't feel deprived in any way. Now I have cut out most sugars, processed foods with all those bad chemicals that I am pretty sure lead to the obesity levels in the USA. We were sold down the river to believe this junk doesn't hurt us….NOT.

  • Romeo7771

    So many doctors are outright incompetent. I would either fire them all, or send them back to school to get reducated. That, or there is something more nefarious going on behind the scenes. Doctors being educated wrongly to start with, for whatever purpose. I did not even mention the pharmaceutical and insurance mafia yet. Enough is enough!

    How to cure type 2 diabetes yourself!!! You DON'T need medication, you can take care of this yourself! You will have two meals a day and mini fasts on the weekends. The only thing you will need the doctor for is the diagnostics that he can do like the blood tests to find out what your blood sugar is and you a1c score. Start out with intermittent fasting, meaning your skipping breakfast and pushing your first meal till noon. Of course with your meals you need to cut out all sugar, grains, and starches. Just think meat and non starchy vegetables. Beef, poultry, fish, eggs as your protein sources. And veggies as long as there low carb like broccoli, leafy greens like collard greens, etc. That's all your eating, one meal at 12 noon then dinner around 6pm. The rest of the time your fasting, only water. Then on weekends you do mini fasts to really lower your insulin levels thus your a1c!!! And you take it real slow, you don't have to push it to hard! One weekend you might do a 24 hour fast. Example: Friday night have dinner at 6pm then fast until Saturday dinner at 6pm…You just did a 24 hour fast. The next weekend do a 48 hour fast. Dinner 6pm Friday night, then fast till Sunday at 6pm. You may go back and forth with that for a few weeks. Maybe one weekend you might not feel like doing a mini fast so just skip it and follow your two meal a day plan that weekend. However once a month you want to do a 72 hour fast. Dinner 6pm on Friday then you fast till dinner Monday night. That's 3 days! Then after 3 months that's when you go to the doctor and get your blood checked. Make sense? This normally takes 3 to 6 months to get the optimum results! But this works! The body will heal itself!!! I've had people tell me I don't think I can stick to this! I need a donut or a piece of cake every once and a while! To that I say: Google an image of an amputated leg of a diabetic person. That will cure your food desire pretty quick! Have a nice day!

    Cutting carbs was 10x harder than when I quit smoking and alcohol. I was physically sick for 2 long weeks. Wanting , craving sugar, cookies, breads, chocolate, etc.. Every day I felt just a little better. Stuck to it and now my body just burns fat. Your liver will make the glucose you need out of fat or proteins (Gluconeogenesis). Down 70 poinds. If I can do it, you can do it.
