The Fast Life with Diabetes -- Intermittent Fasting

Everything and all things related to INTERMITTENT FASTING WITH DIABETES! We discuss tips, tricks, challenges, and success stories for people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes living an intermittent fasting lifestyle.

I have been T1D since 1997. I have successfully used intermittent fasting to stabilize my blood sugars (A1C of 5.3) and help me lose weight (30 pound weight loss). Intermittent fasting with diabetes is TOTALLY POSSIBLE! Let my guests and me tell you how we do it!

REMINDER: This podcast should not be considered medical advice. Please speak to your doctor to determine whether Afrezza is right for you.

In my opinion, Afrezza is one of the best insulins out there. Unfortunately, not many people - both patients and doctors- know much about it. Afrezza is an inhaled insulin that is very fast acting and it works without the need to pre-bolus. In this episode, I highlight the pros and cons of Afrezza and how I use it in conjunction with intermittent fasting. If you decide that you are interested in learning more about Afrezza, I highly recommend that you call Afrezza directly at 1-844-323-7399 to get started. If you start with your insurance company, expect to encounter road blocks.
