Metabolic Response to 3-day Fast Versus Carbohydrate-free Diet in Type 2 Diabetes
Metabolic Response to 3-day Fast Versus Carbohydrate-free Diet in Type 2 Diabetes
The investigators hypothesis is that a carbohydrate-free diet, ingested for 3 days, results in a change in blood glucose that is similar to the change observed after 3 days of fasting.
In addition to plasma glucose concentrations, other hormones and metabolites known to be affected by fasting will be measured. These include insulin and glucagon, which are hormones that have an important role in regulating fuel use in the body.

Type 2 Diabetes
  • Other: 3 day fast
    Subjects will fast for 72 hours
    Other Name: 3-Day Fast
  • Other: 3 day CHO-free diet
    Subjects will receive a carbohydrate-free diet for 72 hours
    Other Name: Carbohydrate-free diet
  • Placebo Comparator: 3 day fast
    After receiving a standard diet on day 1, subject will fast on days 2, 3, and 4. Water and calorie-fee beverages will be allowed during this 72 hour period.
    Intervention: Other: 3 day fast
  • Active Comparator: CHO-free diet
    After receiving a standard diet on day 1, a carbohydrate-free diet will be provided on days 2, 3, and 4.
    Intervention: Other: 3 day CHO-free diet
