Although intermittent fasting diets (IF) are becoming very popular, no studies have investigated their benefit in diabetes remission. The present study examined the effectiveness of IF in diabetes remission and potential remission durability. Participants between ages 38 and 72 years with type 2 diabetes (T2D) were randomly allocated at a ratio of 1:1 to the Chinese Medical Nutrition Therapy (CMNT) or control group. On completing a 3-month intervention plus a 3-month follow-up, 47.2% of participants achieved diabetes remission in the CMNT group, whereas only 2.8% of individuals achieved remission in the control group. After a 12-month follow-up, 44.4% of the participants achieved sustained remission. The medication costs of the CMNT group were 77.22% lower than those of the control group. This study demonstrated the clinical efficacy of CMNT in achieving diabetes remission for at least 1 year.
