In brief: With precaution

Depending on your illness, monitoring what you eat should not be a problem. Of course, if you are eating too few calories you might consider increasing your caloric intake to help your body heal, specifically your protein intake.
If you are suffering from a chronic condition, you should seek care from your physician before continuing on a restricted diet.
