medical warning

A warning given to a person with a particular predisposing factor about the possibility of exacerbation of a medical condition when exposed to a specific product or service.

For example, medical warnings may be issued for persons with pacemakers, defibrillators, implanted insulin pumps, or other electro-medical devices (e.g., that they should keep magnetic products at least 18 inches from the device; use should be suspended during pregnancy).
