Non-pharmaceutical approach to lowering hemoglobin A1c using time-restricted eating | Ruth Patterson

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

Pharmaceutical drugs such as metformin are used to bring blood sugar into normal levels. While these drugs can be effective, they often have unwanted side effects. An altered eating pattern that involves fasting in the evening can also reduce Hemoglobin A1C – a measure of blood sugar over the past three months. Women who attempted this method of eating found it a feasible and acceptable way to eat. In this clip, Dr. Patterson explains how a lifestyle approach – an altered eating window – can be an effective way to reduce blood sugar levels.
