A fasting-mimicking diet reduces disease risk factors in humans and reverses diabetes in mice

Two new studies from Valter Longo indicate that a brief fasting-mimicking diet periodically reduces disease risk factors and may reverse diseases like diabetes by promoting regeneration.

Note from study leader Valter Longo:
In regard to our recent studies on diabetes, DO NOT try to apply any type of fasting mimicking diet (FMD) to treat either type 1 or type 2 diabetes either on your own or with the help of a doctor. The combination of FMD and insulin or other drugs could increase the risk of severe complications, including the possibility of death. Although the use of the FMD to treat either type 1 or 2 diabetes is promising, it should be tested and proven safe and effective for human use in FDA-approved clinical trials.
