  • Hi everyone,
    I am excited to start doing 5:2 very soon but I was curious if anyone else is trying this with severe health challenges? For example I have type 2 diabetes as well as End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) so my kidneys don’t work and I do home dialysis four days per week. This means not only do I have to restrict my calories but my fluid as well (no more than 32oz/909ml per day).

    I am hoping to lose weight to see if it is helpful with maintaining my other health challenges.

    Thank you for reading and good luck to all of us trying to our health whether for ourselves or our loved ones.

    Those are such tricky health challenges Gatton. I have been aware of people with diabetes have been on here over the years working out how to manage 5:2. I know the site recommendation is that you follow your doctor/specialist’s advice.

    Might your national bodies for those diseases be able to give you help? I really hope you are able to do 5:2 and that it helps your health. All power to you.
