Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni

I’m a youth in my early 20’s and like to try various of healthy and balanced diet. Recently, I’ve came across few articles about intermittent fasting and I discovered that fasting for 24-72 hours could boost immune system. Is this medically healthy and what about water-fasting?

Greetings, thank you for your question.

The answer is a general description of the problem you’re having. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with us.

Based on the above information, we understand your concern about the problem you’re having. For your information, although some study might suggest that intermittent fasting may promote immune boost, there are still limited data as to individual health status may vary and most studies only find short term boost not long term boost. Besides that, prolonged intermittent fasting is not suggested as you are expected to be at a very long period without food.

Therefore, if you wish to lose weight and to maintain immunity, please consult a dietician. For more information, please click on the link (DoctorOnCall) to contact your doctor or on the link (DoctorOnCallEPharma) to speak with our pharmacist online. We will protect your privacy. Thank you.
