Doctor, I want to ask. can fasting reduce immunity?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Until now, research on this matter is still contradictory, but in general the conclusion reached is that fasting can indeed reduce some components of the immune system (such as immune cells and immunoglobulins), but this decrease is still within normal limits and does not cause interference significant immune system function (meaning that it does not make the person sicker or more easily infected).


A factor that is considered more influential is the adequacy of your nutrition before and during fasting. To keep your body's immune system in good condition, you must make sure you eat enough nutritious food in sufficient quantities (not less and not too much) while you are fasting. In addition to ensuring the adequacy of your nutrition, you are also advised to get enough sleep and rest, enough to drink, enough to exercise, and avoid unhealthy behaviors such as smoking, drinking caffeine and excessive alcohol.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
