I have recently been diagnosed with Narcolepsy and for the time being at least still experiencing sleep attacks where I fall asleep involuntarily.
I am very keen to try 5:2 dieting as I want to lose the weight I put on whilst recovering from a car accident but slightly nervous about the effect the diet will have on my condition.
I am hoping that it will make it slightly better in terms of increasing my energy levels etc but not sure how this will fare on fasting days.
Has anyone done 5:2 with either narcolepsy or other sleep disorders and how did it affect them?

I’m interested in this topic also! I have only tried juice fasting before and found that while my daytime symptoms improved, I was unable to fall asleep and stay asleep as well at night. Like I was too amped from the adrenaline maybe? I was not taking any supplements, however, so may have been better had I supplemented with magnesium.
