A FASTING DIET COULD REVERSE DIABETES & REPAIR THE PANCREAS, - HEALTH
Today’s Alternative News Channel – A FASTING DIET COULD REVERSE DIABETES & REPAIR THE PANCREAS, NEW RESEARCH SHOWS
The research explains that the diet triggers the pancreas to regenerate itself, which works to control blood sugar levels and reverse symptoms of diabetes.
The scientists put mice into an artificial fasting mode for four days a week over a period of several months to regenerate beta cells in the pancreas, which stores and releases insulin, and saw that working cells took the place of damaged ones. The team even experimented on pancreatic cell cultures from human donors affected by type I diabetes, and found that the diet generated additional insulin, as well as the Ngn3 protein needed to ensure the pancreas functions correctly.
Having been tested only on mice and on human cells in lab conditions, there is still a ways to go to prove its efficacy in the real world. Researchers also advise against trying it at home as a means for treating diabetes.
According to the team from the University of Southern California, the diet reverses, for mice, symptoms of type I diabetes
