How many days would i stay on a bland diet following a diverticulitis attack?

How many days would i stay on a bland diet following a diverticulitis attack?

Depends: It depends on how bad the attack is. Sometimes diverticulitis attacks are bad enough that they require hospital admission with IV antibiotics. Sometimes they can be treated with antibiotics by mouth as an outpatient. If the attack is bad you might be kept nothing by mouth for a few days. Or it is possible that you could be kept on clear liquids for a few days while the attack resolves. ...Read more

Can you tell me if slimgenics works? They won't say much on the phone. Can you recommend an easy to prepare , bland diet book? Thank you!

For some it may.: Most diet plans and supplements are modestly helpful, if you combine them with healthy foods and regular exercise. In general, if patients are willing to spend money on losing weight i recommend weight watchers. Consumer reports shows that they outperform the competition by a wide margin. Ww teaches good nutrition and backs this up with friendly accountability. ...Read more

I'm on a bland diet for gastritis, gluten, diary free and vegeration also. I eat 4 times/day small meals, but I have 1stool/week. What can I do?

See below: Increase fiber intake to 35 grams/day. Prunes and other dried fruit like apricots are natural laxatives and helpful. Drink an extra 4 glasses of water daily. Consult your doctor if you continue to have constipation. SEE: http://bit.ly/1uzOegm and http://bit.ly/1ysaKJv ...Read more

Is it normal to have prolonged pain for three hours every day. I have been like this for three months diagnose gastritis no bacteria. on bland diet.

No: It is not normal to have such pain daily, and if it is coming from gastritis, antacid medications should make it get better. Your doctor can evaluate you further for what the cause may be. ...Read more

I had gallbladder surgery 4 days ago. Doing very well. Tired of bland diet, what can I eat? I'm afraid to eat anything not bland!

I had gallbladder surgery 4 days ago. Doing very well. Tired of bland diet, what can I eat? I'm afraid to eat anything not bland!

No restrictions: After the gallbladder is removed there is no need to avoid fatty foods. Prior to surgery, a patient with gallbladder problems should avoid fatty foods to avoid symptoms. A small percentage of patients will get post op urgency, which is an urgent need to have a bm about 30-45 minutes after meals. This will be self limited, or easily quelled with Imodium ad. Good luck. ...Read more
