How To Control Diabetes: If you take medicine to control diabetes, then this article is for you. Here we are telling you about a diet that can control diabetes better than medicine.


Diabetes patients need to have sugar under control. The question of their quality of life depends on this. Therefore, to prevent sugar from increasing or decreasing, they have to keep taking medicines on time. 

However, according to a recent study, the 5:2 diet plan prepared by Dr. Michael Mosley for people suffering from type 2 diabetes is said to be more beneficial than medicine. In such a situation, if you want to control diabetes without medicine, then definitely give this diet plan a try-

What is the 5:2 diet plan?

The 5:2 diet plan is similar to intermittent fasting. It involves eating without restriction for five days and then cutting down on 500-600 calories for two days in a row. The theory behind the diet is that after a day with restricted calories, the body starts using energy from food to burn fat. 

According to a report published in the JAMA Network Open Journal, following such an eating plan helps in glycemic control as well as reducing obesity. 

The effect is better than the medicine

This study of 405 adults found that following the 5:2 diet plan resulted in better glycemic control (blood glucose levels) than metformin and empagliflozin, making it an excellent alternative to medication for patients with type 2 diabetes.

The effect was visible in three months

Researchers reported that diabetes patients who followed the 5:2 diet saw a significant drop in average HbA1C blood sugar in three months. Apart from this, a reduction in their waist and hip fat was also observed.
