Really interested to hear thoughts, experiences or advice regarding intermittent fasting.

Long story short, I've noticed a huge ramp up in painful joints since being put on insulin and having hi bs.
Saw part of a docu which said whilst fasting your bodies cells get chance to repair themselves vs constant supply of food which not only feeds healthy cells but also zombie cells that are suboptimal. Resulting in arthritis,ageing,hairloss,cancer dementia.

I didn't see the whole docu and I am concerned about ketones so any help advice or anything really would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Did you get any replies to this? I am type 3c and been doing intermittent fasting for about a year, going really strict and 18 hours fasting 5 days a week, other two about 14 hours each. Not lost any weight, and commenting to diabetic nurse I have early morning bs in low 3s then get liver dumping sometimes into 10s, and perhaps into 20s on eating. Something not working right; she is thinking I need a Libre Monitor.
