A friend s colon ruptured, wears a bag now , doc. Told her was cause she ate a lot of salad. Does it mean u can't have that w/diverticulitis?

3 doctors agree

In brief: If you have

Diverticulitis, an actual infection that developed in a diverticulum, you should be on low residue diet.
If you have diverticulosis without inflammation, general recommendation is a high residue diet to relax hypertrophic muscles that caused them in the first place. Does that make sense?
