No, but...: You don't have to do anything you don't want to do, but it would help. Constipation is something to be avoided if you have diverticulosis.

Diverticulosis.: Diverticulosis is manageable, not curable. Once the pockets in the colon form, they don't go back again. High fiber diet is the rule to reduce the number of attacks and to try to prevent more diverticuli from forming.
