DUTCH Case Studies

Intermittent Fasting and Women’s Hormones

Learn more about intermittent fasting in the November DUTCH Case Study with Dr. Christina O’Brien!

Caloric restriction and intermittent fasting are known to improve health and prolong life in animal models, but in humans it has been studied less. In this case study, Dr. O’Brien examines the before and after data of a 50-year-old perimenopausal female experimenting with intermittent fasting to improve her health and achieve weight loss. She also explores a review of the current literature on intermittent fasting and its impact on women’s hormones.
