And is it safe and/or appropriate for a type 2 with numbers fairly well under control? My numbers are at their highest in the am, no higher than 106, lately.

Absolutely. An excellent idea. (Provided no insulin or glucose-lowering drugs.)

Thanks sir. Does metformin fall into that category? I only take 500 mg before bed. I would have to do mine around eating in the am to curb my dawn p, although as I stated, I usually am at 106 or lower like clockwork.
Sir, you are a wealth of knowledge. I would pay good money to sit down with you over a meal and talk. Thanks again.

No meds here. And I have done I.F. now and then with no problems. If I have a very fatty meal before the fast, I don't get hungry or fatigued.

I should do this more often.

(Metformin works in the liver, and doesn't immediately lower BG - it just keeps the liver dumps to reasonable levels. And your one 500mg dose is quite low.)

I do fat fasting -- 1000 kcal per day, 900 from fat.

I have a good handle on how to reduce my insulin safely, for it. Not that hard.

I believe it is always good to know how to handle fasting with your personal medication regimen, in case you get sick, and cannot eat!

That is an excellent point!! I hadn't really thought about that, I haven't been sick (not eating type sick), in a loooong time.

Ok, I'm feeling a bit ignorant here. What exactly is intermittent fasting?
