Recommended Diets For Diverticulosis Sufferers

See a doctor: Diverticulosis is not surgically treated. Diverticulosis does not cause constipation. You need to see a doctor for treatment of your chronic constipation. Repeated episodes of true infection requiring antibiotics due to recurrent diverticulitis may benefit from surgery, but this surgery will not be expected to correct chronic constipation either. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had perforated colon. 5 inches descending colon removed. Do i still need to follow a diet for diverticulosis ?
Eat well...: It's never too late to start eating well. At 45 with a history of diverticulitis, i'd recommend a broad diet with adequate fibre, and try to lower your fat content. It wouldn't hurt to add a cheap bulk laxative. You don't need to avoid seeds or salads, though I do suggest you limit your intake of nuts and popcorn - not an absolute moratorium, just not a daily diet. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

There is evidence that a high fiber diet decreases episodes of abdominal pain in those with diverticulosis. Remember that fiber and fluid work together, so also drink more water as you add more fiber to your diet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
