Preoperative glucose levels may predict postoperative cardiac outcomes regardless of whether patients have diabetes

Intermittent fasting appears effective for HbA1c reduction in type 2 diabetes

Patients on the intermittent energy restriction diet ate 500 to 600 kcal/d on two nonconsecutive days each week and followed their usual diet on the other days. They were compared to a group eating 1,200 to 1,500 kcal/d.
