A 40-year-old male asked:
Surgery will help: This is a tough question and still being looked at. The data so far does show that antireflux surgery)does shows some regression of short amounts of Barrett's. It has also helped slow the progression of Barrett's to cancer. However it does not eliminate the need for continued surveillance. Consult your physician on that. If a hiatal hernia repaired it may also help with future Barrett tx.
A 79-year-old male asked:
Eat more fiber.: There is no known direct link with sugar or its substitutes causing diverticulitis flare up. However sugar and sweeteners can cause diarrhea or other GI symptoms in certain patients. In general if you have diverticulosis a high fiber diet will help. And that would include avoiding food high in sugar. If you have chronic diverticulitis, it may time to visit a surgeon.
A 47-year-old member asked:
Yes: If a hernia becomes trapped, the contents within it can start to die. This could lead to fever and diarrhea.
