Is it okay to eat peanut butter if you have diverticulitis?

Creamy oK

Peanut_butter
If one has diverticulosis crunchy peanut butter would have small pieces of peanuts in it that could occlude the diverticulum and lead to the inflammatory condition called diverticulitis. The same reason to limit or eliminate popcorn due to some of the seeds working through the colonic track with the potential to occlude as well. With diverticulitis one should be on a low residue diet for a period of time.

Most anything

There has been alot of misinformation as to how diet relates to diverticulitis. Limiting certain foods such as seeds , popcorn etc used to be common but no scientific evidence exists that these foods caues bouts of diverticulitis. Eat a high fiber diet, drink plenty of fluids and avoid constipation

Can people with diverticulitis eat flaxseed?

Depends

Feces
There are two schools of thought. And u guessed it, some say u can and others u can't! Personally I feel that the biggest thing is FORMED SOFT BM. If ur stool is not hard, small pellets and u don't have to strain, eating seeds in moderation should b fine. Key is fiber fiber fiber and lots of water.

Can you eat red meat when you have diverticulitis !?

Depends

If this is acute (just started) u have to see a doctor and usually nothing to eat or drink until things are better. When eating, u have to b on low residue diet for 4 to 6 wks. Red meats can b hard to digest but ok to take. After 6 weeks, HIGH fiber is the key to prevent future complications.

Can you eat sunflower seeds when you have diverticulitis?

Yes

It is a common misconception that you should avoid seeds or nuts with diverticulitis. There is excellent scientific evidence that seeds or nuts do not cause diverticulitis. In fact, these are forms of fiber that are beneficial in preventing diverticulosis and diverticulitis. I tell all my patients with a history of diverticulitis to eat nuts and seeds and not worry.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

I have diverticulitis. Can I eat strawberries, tomatoes, and nuts?

Probably

Diverticulitis
Diverticulitis occurs when a small pocket on the wall of the colon ruptures. We used to believe that any foods that can block the small opening of the diverticulum could precipitate diverticulitis, leading to the recommendation to avoid seeded fruits and vegetable and nuts. Nevertheless, no study has substantiated this claim. Therefore, it is probably fine to eat these foods.

Dr. Aruna Bakhru answered:

What is a healthy snack for diverticulitis since I can't eat seeds or nuts?

Food with Fiber

Most fruits and vegetables with fiber are good. Just seed containing foods like kiwi, tomato, peppers r not recommended unless carefully deseeded. Reason being, seeds can get trapped in the pockets of the diverticula setting up a focus for infection , inflammation.

treat diverticulitis with 14 days of antibiotics, a liquid diet until pain and fever and White blood cell count normalize, then a low fiber diet for a full 6 weeks to let colon heal.

I had surgery for diverticulitis on 2003 - can I get this back?and can I eat strawberry seeds?

Yes it can recur

Diverticulitis
Surgery usually involves a resection of the part of the colon infected so that a recurrence can occur in another part of the colon. As far as diet is concerned the diverticular diet was devised in the 1920s and excluded all seeds, etc.(things that dont get digested) however in more recent years these things do not seem to be a cause of diverticulitis. In the 1920s a physician found a seed in the
