Diet Restrictions

Diet restrictions are doctor-recommended cutbacks one needs to practice regarding the intake of certain foods and beverages. If there is a particular food material or a group of foods that may pose a health risk, or trigger an existing medical condition in one's body, the doctor might order a diet restriction. For instance, somebody with elevated blood pressure may be asked to cut back on table salt. Or somebody with lactose intolerance will have to avoid milk and all other dairy products in their daily diet.
