Diet II


A patient says her doctor recommended that she start a diet with four to five servings of fruit, four to five servings of vegetables, two to three servings of low fat dairy per day, and less than 25% of her dietary intake from fat.

Challenge: What medical condition is this diet supposed to treat?

Diet II

This is the DASH diet; studies have shown that it improves blood pressure control in patients with hypertension.
