Diverticulitis: High fibre diet is recommended for longterm management of the condition. Some authorities though would recommend avoiding high fibre, high residue foods during flareups. The extract is not typically advised in conventional medicine. Safest thing here is to discuss with surgeon, doctor or dietician licensed in your area. https://patient.info/health/diverticula-including-diverticulosis-diverticu

Low residue diet: Low residue diet which is the opposite of high fiber for 10 to 14 days.
