Fasting for Diabetes

Diabetics can juice fast using slices of bananas and avocados to balance the blood sugar level.  Spirulina is also exceedingly beneficial for balancing blood sugar levels. The trick to balancing blood sugar levels is drink smaller amounts of juice timed 20 to 30 minutes apart. Fruit juices are better due to the fact that they have fructose a much slower release sugar than the glucose in carrots. But if you drink the juice slowly, your blood sugar levels can be maintained. A study published in the journal Diabetes Care in 2003 looked at 60 men and women with Type 2 diabetes who were taking diabetes pills. The participants took either 1, 3, or 6 grams of cassia cinnamon or a placebo, in capsule form, for 40 days. After this time, blood glucose levels dropped between 18% and 29% in all three groups that received cinnamon. However, only the participants who had taken the smallest amount of cinnamon (1 gram) continued to have improved blood glucose levels 20 days after they stopped taking it, for reasons the researchers didn’t quite understand.  So add cinnamon to your fruit juices if you are diabetic to help control your blood sugar during juice fasting.


I am on fruit+vegetable fast for the last 8 days, i am feeling great, I am a diabetic yesterday my diabetes was 110(fasting) I have reduces the medicines to 1/4 of actual dose and planning to leave the medicines in a day/two.

That is great news, expect the results to get better and better each day.  Tom

Now I have entered 10th day of fasting and feeling fine I have left my medicines completely. I am Taking Juices of gaurd+tomatto+carrot+Spinach+Lemon+Oranges around 5 times a day appx 1.25 ltrs. in complete day.

Just to test Yesterday I have taken 150ML of pure Apple Juice+75 ML of water at 8PM then I checked my B/Sugar at 8:15PM it was 181 then at 10PM( After 2hrs) it was 122. That clearly shows that my system has started reducing sugar on its own without the support of any medicine. I think it is an achievement within a span of 10 Days.*
Once Again “Thanks a lot for your support”

    Today it is my 24th day of fasting. I am feeling great, the blood sugar(91 Fasting) and blood pressure(130/81) both are in control without any medicine and I am feeling very energetic. I am doing 45 minutes of exercise.
    My life has been completely changed I lost 5 Kgs. of weight.


    • Tom Coghill says:

      This is great news. I am trying to find a piece of research on a study that was done where diabetics reduced insulin resistance for 6 months after a fast. I wish I had a research team just for this one topic alone. What you have done is impossible with western medicine. Yet no one knows this can be done consistently.

    Dear All,

    Today I have completed my 3st day of fasting, I am feeling great. My stamina is on highest ever, I am trainer and today I am on tour far away from my home, Since morning to evening I was standing and delivering lecture on different topics. the session lasted around seven hours and now I am not feeling any pain in my legs of any type of fatigue. A month back when I do a program for 5 to 6 hours in the evening I was unable to stand firmly and I usually felt very tired.This is an achievement I can again do a 3 to 4 hour program now. My stamina has gone up in all the fields, my thought process has improved very much. Previously I was feeling a little bit of impotence but today it is nowhere.

    Anyone who is reading this and is suffering from diabetes, please read material on net regarding fasting and diabetes and cure your diabetes. This site has helped me too much.

    I will go for 40 days fast and let you know all the facts.

    Hi Khurram
    That is perfect blood sugar. “Yes diabetes is a curable’ Your journey to health will inspire others. Did you notice any particular juices spike yous blood sugar levels. Some said that beets was the only vegetable to spike blood sugar. How long did it take for your blood sugar to normalize.
    What was your blood sugar levels before the fast?
    How much juice did you drink per day and how?
    Other diabetics will follow your plan like a map.

  8. Khurram Kazmi says:

    Dear Tom,

    When I started the fast 37 days back my blood sugar(fasting) was 160 with medicines, I was taking Metformin(100mg)+Rosiglatizone(2mg) twice daily. It took me 3-4 days to normalise my blood sugar and initially I cut half the medicine and after 3rd day I completely left the medicines. Every second day I was checking my sugar. After 10 days of fasting my sugar stabilised perfectly and now it is between 90-100(fasting).
    Regarding beets it is true, initially I was taking beets but it has risen my sugar level a little bit but after 20th day no juice has any effect on my sugar. I am an office goer so I can not take juice in small quantities. So I take 200ML in morning, 300ML in afternoon, 200ML in evening, 300ML in night, and if required 200MlL late night (after 10PM). I mix Squash+Tomato+Spinach+Orange+Apple+Raspberry+Lemon. I also use to take green tea without milk or sugar. I have made daily details in excel formate and also writing my comments. Will pass on any one who wants.

    I will be always available to help anyone who wants to do the fast for diabetes. My Mail id is

    An amendment:-

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Khurram Kazmi
      Such great news. You have done well. Research conducted with human patients, mice, and pancreas beta cell cultures all point to a single threshold at which elevated blood sugars cause permanent damage to your body is140 mg/dl (7.8 mmol/L) after meals. So you are now at a safe point and it will only get better. Yes acute renal failure can be cured through a 30 to 50 day juice fast. It is a delicate balance detoxing within the capacity of the kidneys. I followed a Dr. Ehret who cured himself of Brights Kidney Disease with fasting and I also had major kidney problems before I was cured through juice fasting.

  23. crescent04 says:

    I am on day 6 of my first water fast. Just found your fabulous site, and I have a question about my diabetes with this fast – My sugars are ranging between 175-225, even with no food. Here are my specs.
    Starting weight: 307 (down from 348)
    Current weight: 294.6
    Age: 48
    Ketosis: maximum
    Blood Glucose this morning: 225
    I have done several cleanses this year, and I eat a healthy, low-carb, mostly fresh food diet (little processed foods, little caffeine). Even so, I can’t seem to loose weight or control my diabetes.
    I have been reading about the benefits of fasting, and I just decided to “do it” on Sunday morning, and here I am day 6. Actually feel great. Had some heavy-headness and slight headaches the first few days, but nothing major. Not experiencing any of the “bad” symptoms of water fasting, have energy, mental capacity.

    Would like to make it at least 30 days to see if I can “cure” or reduce symptoms of diabetes.
    I am taking isotonic vitamins in my water – multi, OPC3, calcium and b vitamins. Also 10 drops of colloidal silver a day and some Himalayan salt. Yesterday I drank some green detox tea, which seemed to do some colon cleansing. I have also had a cup of vegetable bullion broth in the evenings (organic), and at least one cup of green tea daily, with a few drops of stevia and lemon/lime. i have been adding some lemon and/or lime juice to my water on occassion.

    Should I be concerned about my sugar levels? I am considering taking a small dose of insulin today to bring them down. My goal is to loose weight and cure my diabetes. Any suggestions would be welcomed and implemented immediately.

    God Bless you for you commitment to helping us ! – Carole

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Cresent,
      I have seen this once before. So it is good to take you blood sugar med till you get to 140 .
      According to the ADA (American Diabetes Association), your highest high should be below 180 and according to the AACE (American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists), your highest high should be 140.
      Fasting commonly cures diabetes but there are a few times the process of healing is slow or does not heal.
      The body heals better on a juice fast compared to water fasting. Green juice shots glasses are good as no cal and lot of nutrients.

  24. keith101 says:

    Hi Tom im back lol,,,,,,finally got my hotmail account sorted 🙂

  25. keith101 says:

    Hi Cresent.
    Tom is right, the thing is, if you focuced on water fasting with diabetes you must be supervised every week by your doctor to make sure it is safe to continue on water fasting, however Tom is right on juice fasting apposed to water fasting, your meds should still be taken and as i said be supervised by your doctor on your fast. Rapid waight loss is gained by water fasting, but your condition far better suits juice fasting.
    Blessings on your journey.
    PS…Once you start loosing the weight join a gym, fasting is a means to loosing weight…Its what you do after the fast that counts.

  26. Khurram Kazmi says:
