Earlier eating window reduces inflammation and hemoglobin A1C in people doing time-restricted eating | Ruth Patterson

Parent Episode: Ruth Patterson, PhD, on Time-Restricted Eating in Humans & Breast Cancer Prevention

An extended overnight fast can improve hemoglobin A1C levels, a biomarker for the three months average plasma glucose concentration, and C-reactive protein levels, a biomarker of inflammation. In both the general population and a group of breast cancer survivors, women who practiced a longer fasting window had lower hemoglobin A1C levels. Women who finished eating earlier in the evening exhibited diminished inflammation as compared to those who fasted the same amount of time but finished eating later. In this clip, Dr. Ruth Patterson describes the advantages of an earlier eating window on inflammation and blood glucose control.
