Fasting Effects on the Diabetic’s Eyes

Fasting Effects on the Diabetic’s Eyes

By Micah Moen 100 Comments March 26, 2020


I want to talk about the fasting effects
on a diabetic’s eye now just to be transparent this study that I’m
basing this on was done on mice so if you actually do have some pet mice that
need better vision because they’re diabetic you could apply this this is
what they found there was a protective effect on the retina and other nerves
the retina is nerve tissue it’s basically your brain extending in your
eye socket this is what they found this is actually quite interesting fasting
improves the microbiome the microbiome are your friendly bacteria it causes
these microbes to modify change bile acids or bile salts to this specific
compound right here which then gives protection to your nerves so if you’re
diabetic you’re gonna have problems with the vascular supply the capillaries to
the nerves the nerves are gonna start to die off slowly and the fingertips and
the toes and the eyes and the kidney and so this compound counters the damage to
the nerve not just in the eye but other nerves as well now that would make sense
because what’s causing this problem originally is the high level of sugar
that a diabetic is living with okay so sugar is very corrosive it kind of rusts
out the nervous system inside the body it destroys it
so you’re basically not eating so you’re gonna eliminate this as well as drop and
normalize your insulin levels but what’s even more fascinating about this is that
when you fast your microbes actually improve it’s fascinating
they start to increase the resistance to oxidative stress they start to diversify
they actually build up their community they become stronger you would think if
you starve them they would die off faster no they live longer okay because
there are certain genes that kick in that our survival genes
and obviously they’ve been coping with starvation for a very very long time
because they were here before us they also found that they can tolerate
pathogens better so if you want to make your microbes stronger and get all the
benefits from producing certain type of byproducts that help your blood sugars
and improve your insulin resistance to having the microbes make more vitamins
to have more immune protection definitely include fasting with your
healthy keto plan if you’re new to my channel I put a link down below of
exactly how to do it thanks for watching

I went off sugar back in June 2019. I get a new pair of glasses every March. When my optometrist was done with my test. She said this strange. Whatโ€™s strange I said. Youโ€™re eyes have improved not only the sight but your focus as well. Iโ€™m mid 40s. She told me I should be rolling down hill not up it. Thanks Dc Berg for all this sweet information. Iโ€™m putting it to the test and itโ€™s working great.

Doc, you really ought to check out what Dr. Jerry Tennant is doing with nutrition for retinopathy. He was an ophthalmologist who nearly died from a brain infection from inhaling the laser plume used for LASIK surgery. Colleagues wrote him off for dead, he saved his own life and turned his attention to integrative medicine.

My vision is 20/20 but unfortunately I still have diabetic floaters and clear cataracts from years of being type 2, even after going keto and water fasting over a month. Eye damage is something that will probably take a long time to reverse.

Wow… didn't know this!! Thanks!
I do OMAD almost every day…. should the fast be longer than this? I've been thinking I should try skipping one or 2 meals and do 48 or 72 hour fasts…. longer than that scares me some.
THANK YOU again for all your great videos. They are comforting in times like this!!

This is amazing…..i think that is why I went to my optometrist to adjust my prescription Glasses
But the study was done on mice…
So what we already seeing a very good benefits from fasting any way
Am always in fasting either IMA or 2 meals a day …
Last time my long fasting was on January I did the 72 hrs Fasting
It was Amazing…Dr.Berg i wasn't even hungry after 72 hrs i could have stayed longer…but i noticed that my Glasses it not fitting properly to see a better vision I was always changing them I was just adjusting them with my hand to keep them little bit higher from the back I did not know what was going on I went to the optometrist place they told me that hold on what is it do you have to keep it this way like they were raising the the sides if my glasses to more clear and crisp and they told me that there's nothing wrong with your glasses Univision is improving what are you doing it seems to me they told me that your vision is improving๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ
I was so excited to hear that
I dont take Probiotic i started Keto on 2015 i remember i only took probiotic…maybe 4 to 5 times so far i depend a lot on fermented food sauerkraut and kimchi…+ others
Thank you so much Dr.berg for doing this video…i am waiting until Oct of this year to be quality for eye exam vision test
To all you of audience hair for dr. Brooke I will update you after October on my vision status!

Hi Dr Berg. Can you please make a video on eye floaters ? I know that you have made one on liquid msm drops, but can you please make one on the etiology of eye floaters and maybe natural ways of getting rid of the annoying floaters. I am perfectly healthy with 20/20 vision, yet have long thread like eye floaters in both eyes since last few months. Thanks & Regards.

Can you differentiate if you mean T2D rather than T1D because my son's endo has him eating on a set schedule so that he gets insulin with carbs to keep him from getting ketones. In his world ketones can kill him but with a working pancreas, they seem to be fine. So confusing. Thanks.

I had developed diplopia during the worst of my diabetes over 15 years ago, and now I can't get any eye doctor to "unprescribe" prismed lenses. They had only helped me in a limited fashion as I had mix of both focal and generalized dystonia at the time. All the symptoms, other than I easily get writer's cramp, have currently left. Prismed glasses are not comfortable when you don't need them.

I have had the same doctor for many years and he always says cleaning up my diabetes has made a major difference in what my eyes looked like years back from "sugar damage" as he calls it.

I believe keto and fasting were essential in saving my vision.

I saw the ophthalmologist regularly after the hypertensive crisis (before diabetes, which I've since reversed) and she told me I had retinopathy. I still see her, and she's very happy with the changes. Fortunately, keto and fasting seem to have kept it in remission even after most of the blood pressure medicine became unnecessary (I still take half of the smallest available Lysinopril, except while on an extended fast, and Timolol, to prevent glaucoma.) She found out I'm doing keto, though, and she doesn't want me to eat fat. ๐Ÿ™

I wear readers for close-up work, but other than that, my vision is (and has been) normal, 20-20.

I only listen to Eric Berg and Dr.Jason Fung. They look healthy and young. That's mean they do somethings correctly. Thomas DeLauer is considered a health expert, but he is aging 2x faster. He is younger than me 4 years, but he looks like my dad. He can't convince me based on his results. Having a ton of body muscles doesn't mean healthy.

Diabetes caused the pressure to go up in my eyes, and it changed constantly making reading very difficult. Using keto and IF the pressure has permanently gone down and had to resort to older glasses. A1C is reading normal 5.5. Have also found out IF is good for the gout caused from high metabolism. By having a small feeding window it allows the needed time to clear the uric acid out. It is not so much what I eat as how often. Had a sinus infection that could never be eliminated for very long always coming back, for frikken many years. Used garlic oil in the ear and a garlic sinus wash and appears to be permanently gone.

Challenging question for Dr. Berg. Is the fasting window more important than what is eaten during the eating window? My wife would like to know whether it would be preferable to have a longer fast with 1-2 meals (while mixing in some less preferred carbohydrates like bread during the eating window) OR a shorter fast and more meals but eating good fats per keto guidelines. Hope for a video on this topic! Go Dr. Berg!!!

Okay, so Thomas DeLauer says eat "LEAN" cuts of meat on Keto and Dr. Berg says you need "Fattier" cuts of meat on Keto because LEAN cuts of meat raises your insulin levels. Im confused now if these are the authorities on IF and KETO.
