The following criteria should be helpful in making such a decision:

Forbid fasting in:

All brittle type I diabetic patients;

Poorly controlled type I or type II diabetic patients;

Diabetic patients known to be incompliant in terms of following advice on diet drug regimens and daily activity;

Diabetic patients with serious complications such as unstable angina or uncontrolled hypertension;

Patients with a history of diabetic ketoacidosis;

Pregnant diabetic patients;

Diabetic patients will inter-current infections;

Elderly patients with any degree of alertness problems;

Allow fasting in:

Patients who do not have the aforementioned criteria;

Encourage fasting in:

All overweight NIDDM patients (except for pregnant or nursing mothers) whose diabetes is stable with weight levels 20% above the ideal weight or body mass index (body weight, kg/height, meters squared) greater than 28.

Fasting can be used for nearly every chronic condition, including allergies, anxiety, arthritis, asthma,
depression, diabetes, headaches, heart disease, high cholesterol, low blood sugar, digestive disorders, mental
illness, and obesity. Fasting is an effective and safe weight loss method. It is frequently prescribed as a
detoxification treatment for those with conditions that may be influenced by environmental factors, such as
cancer and multiple chemical sensitivity. Fasting has been used successfully to help treat people who have
been exposed to high levels of toxic materials due to accident or occupation. Fasting is thought to be
beneficial as a preventative measure to increase overall health, vitality, and resistance to disease. Fasting is
also used as a method of mental and spiritual rejuvenation.
