Anyone else unable to fast due to genuine medical limitations? How do you handle it?

Are you up front about it with others, or do you just pretend like you're fasting as well to save face?

From the outside, I look young, healthy/able which is why I feel the shame.

I know we shouldn't care about what others think, and that Allah knows what's in my heart, but I still can't help but to feel shame.
