Diet therapy is a method of eating prescribed by a dietician to improve a person's health. A number of conditions are treated in part with therapeutic diets and nutrition counseling. Diet Therapy Treatment involve including foods that improve specific health conditions, while avoiding foods that may make the condition worse. Some health conditions require temporary therapeutic diets. A nutritional therapist can advice a therapeutic diet that may become a permanent change necessary to keep the person healthy. Medical doctors or dietitians normally formulate therapeutic diets. The diet may change over time based on the person's response and improvement in health status. There are many types of Diet Therapy based on an individual's body condition. A gluten-free diet is an example of a dietary change that one must maintain to remain healthy. People with gluten intolerance must avoid gluten-containing foods to prevent damage to their intestines. The diabetic diet is a very common therapeutic diet involving limiting high-sugar food to help control blood sugar levels. Other therapeutic diets limit nutrients such as salt, to control blood pressure, or saturated fat, to manage cholesterol. These types of diets take some time getting used to. However once they are accustomed, this becomes the lifestyle change our body has been craving for. They can be followed throughout a person's life and the changes that happen during this are usually permanent.
