In brief: Need not be any

A vegetarian diet, even a vegan diet, can be very healthy if you choose enough quality protein, and supplement as required (b12 and several other nutrients are hard to get otherwise).
You'll need to maintain a healthy lifestyle otherwise, and not ignore your physician's guidelines based on your health history -- the vegetarian diet isn't magic. It's a strong moral choice. Consider it.
