Abstract

This report illustrates a case of a 60-year-old lady with type 2 diabetes mellitus who performs intermittent fasting (IF) diet, with the aim to lose her weight and indirectly reverse her diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and hyperlipidaemia. She managed to get the optimum blood pressure, lose 6 kg, and reduce her glycaemic control from 7.8% to 5.8% within 10 months period. However, she started to get episodes of symptomatic post prandial hypoglycaemia when she is about to achieve her target.
