Bland diets don't!

Bland diets were the staple of gastritis and ulcer treatment for years. They did not work. Paradoxically, spicy foods, stimulate the stomach with time to produce cytoprotective prostaglandings which inhibit gastritis and ulcer. People with a spicy and hot diet have fewer ulcers than people who live on bland diets (Mexico vs US). The transition takes time but occurs. See your doctor for meds!

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.

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.

 Diet Exercise Healthy foods Losing weight Margin Nutrition Supplements Vitamins and supplements Weight

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.

You need probiotics. Start gently and increase. Consider kombucha, kefir, and other naturally fermented foods. Make sure you get saccharomyces boulardii with the probiotic mix. Eat lots of organic fruit and vegetables. Can drink green tea and herbal teas also. Glutamine can assist in gut healing.

The first thing you need to do is to determine the cause of the pain. A bland diet will not help. See your primary care doctor or a GI specialist.
