Using Nupo when ill

Daily medication

If you take medications daily, you should always talk to your doctor before starting a Nupo diet.

Different kinds of medications are sensitive to changes and therefore your doctor needs to evaluate if your medication needs to be changed before you start your Nupo diet.

Even if you are using medication daily, most people will be able to use the Nupo diet. Your doctor has to approve it in order to avoid some unexpected challenges while you are losing weight, using Nupo.


Diuretic medication

Do not take any diuretic medication without consulting your doctor. No matter which diet you partake in, you could possibly get to a point where you have potassium deficiency. The great loss of liquid might look motivating on a scale, but it has absolutely nothing to do with losing fat. If your doctor has given you a prescription of diuretic medication to prevent swelling or high blood pressure, talk to your doctor before starting the Nupo diet.



If you have Type 2 diabetes and need to lose weight, using the Nupo diet is possible. Talk to your doctor regarding regulation of your diabetes medication or your insulin. Both might have to be reduced while you are dieting to prevent low blood sugar. If you have Type 1 diabetes, you are unable to use the Nupo diet.


Special conditions

The Nupo diet should not be used if any of the following conditions apply to you:

  • Recently had a blood clot in the heart
  • Heart arrhythmia
  • Kidney or liver diseases
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Psychiatric diseases

Your doctor can decide if Nupo diet can be used in a weight loss procedure when certain precautions are being taken into consideration. In special cases, it might be possible to use the Nupo diet if the doctor adjusts the medication.

Breast feeding mothers and elderly people should only use the diet after consulting their doctor.

According to the applicable legislation, Nupo should only be used as nutrition under the supervision of a doctor.
