In brief: Diverticulitis

Diverticulitis is an active infection of small pouches on the colon that needs proper antibiotics and light low fiber diet during the infection.
For non-infected diverticulosis, high fiber diet is recommended with fruits, vegetables, metamucil and plenty of water to drink (avoid junk food, white bread, white rice, pasta, greasy burgers & fries, etc.).
