Fasting for adults with type 1 diabetes 
Intermittent as well as prolonged fasting appaer favorable in conditions such metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and rheumatic diseases. Fasting for individuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) is generally considered too risky. The aim of this patient-led research was to investigate the feasibility, benefit, and safety of a 7-d multimodal fasting intervention in individuals with T1D. The study results indicate achievement of the stated aims (open access):
