    I have just been diagnosed with diverticulitis and was in hospital for a week with a perforated bowel which was painful to say the least I have been out of hospital 1 week and already had a flare up after eating a boiled baby potato with the skin on I have been told on one hand to gradually add more fibre to my diet and on the other to avoid fibre I am very confused, can anyone tell me how long I should wait before adding more fibre into my diet because my doctor didnt seem to know much she gave me a booklet she printed off google and she avoided the question when I asked to speak to a nutritionist…. please help 😥

    Very interesting and what he said was alot of what I suspected. There are two types of fiber,soluble and insoluble. I believe this is the main reason some can`t tolerate ex: corn. If your experiencing diarrhea you avoid corn and certain other insoluble fiber. When constipated you would eat more of them. I had an attack of diverticultis this week ,am taking antibiotics now and I agree I was not eating enough fiber leading up to it. Once you have it,yes you have to avoid temporarily and mostly liquids to give thee intestines a rest. You do however have to start again within a few days gradually. I have noticed in the past if I get enough fiber I can eat corn,popcorn and anything really…. My lazy eating is usually what gets me into trouble,strictly speaking for myself. Thank-you Joe,time to get back on track.

    I’m 33 and recently been diagnosed with diverticula disease, I had to have surgery. The hospital discharged me after a week with no information they didn’t even tell me what I had until I read my discharge letter when I got home, literally said here’s antibiotics take them for 7 days, got home and read the letter which turned out to say “Perforated diverticula disease”. I’ve been driving myself crazy reading stuff online which all seems contrasting and different sites contradict what over sites are saying. I literally don’t know what to eat or what not to eat.

    Great information. Thank you for your time

    I was just diagnosed with diverticulitis. We can keep each other in prayer that GOD will heal this disease. Let's just do the best we can by eating the right things and let GOD do the rest. GOD BLESS YOU all

    Foods that have caused diverticulitis to my family, friends and I: popcorn, tomato seeds, peanuts, crunchy peanut butter, strawberries, canned corn and corn on the cob, blueberries and raspberries. Meanwhile, I try to stay away from assorted nuts however I am not sure if it would cause a problem. Good luck.

    Sucks to say it but the cold hard truth is that NOTHING you do or say or eat will stop a flare up. Some of us are just susceptible to it (most likely hereditary). The best you can do is eat what YOU feel comfortable with as far as digesting and hope you don’t get a complication…

    i myself got it..have been having flare ups..since 2011,the first flare ups i been hospitalized and all they gave me was intravenous antibiotic to :"protect my stomach" so they said and ,schedule a colonoscopy which i refused to undergo.
    from then i been having flares up on and on..last year was less,this year i had one in april and one just in the 12 of may.
    cannot belch..cannot pass motion,painful swollen instestine..terrible cramps and fever!
    my home remedy?
    leave a soaked pitted plum over night and drink the water morning.also eat the fruit
    i make a smoothie of;
    turmeric and coconut oil
    drink it and stabilized the intestine. plus probiotics than i got diarrhea. which helped cleanse the colon naturally .going to the docs is a waste of time! my sister and mother died cos they underwent this evasive /delicate intestinal surgery.which is not for those who are already debilitated and old
    my sister was 62 and my mom 82

    people stay away from nuts and seeds and popcorn please,,its not worth the pain.

    The only purest and best form to cure,not to heal is to take Green buds of fine Kaneh bosm.antibiotics destroying your bowel but never helps,and Nobody wants an Operation ..ultimate weapon against this Horror.

    I’ve struggled with diverticular disease for almost 20 years but the last 2 have been really hard. I couldn’t seem to get out of an attack and I was frustrated beyond measure because I just couldn’t get on top of it and I wasn’t eating ANY of the foods that were my known triggers. Antibiotics were the only thing that would turn my attacks around but they knocked my off my feet for at least a week every time I had to take them and like I mentioned the last two years I was on them more than I was off of them it seemed. So I started looking for a more natural way to combat my attacks. I fixed mine with Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar (non pasteurized with the mother) I take the capsules every single day and if I feel an attack coming I drink 1 shot glass of straight ACV for 2 days, sometimes 3 if it doesn’t feel like I’ve got it turned around. This has changed my life! The attacks are still hard and take a toll on me but nothing like the attack combined with the antibiotics did! If you’re having trouble try ACV and see if it will help you too! =}

    My gastrointerologist has me on the low fodmap diet. So far things going pretty good. it is low fiber.granted i am just diverticulosis, is crazy how there seems to be always opposite treatments for everything these days. i think the medical field has just gotten worse, is the 21st century and is crazy the things medicine can't treat or even properly diagnose. i went 2 months without anything to eat daily but a spoonful of applesauce here and there. i lost 60 lbs. I underwent numerous probes, tests, only to be told they didn't know what i had or what did it.Thousands of dollars for that info?????

    Weird. I know when I'm having a flare and have NO infection, most of the time.

    You have to remove the mucoid plaque first. Otherwise never get better. That's my experience

    The most vitamin D you can get from the Sun is around 27%. The remaining 73% that our bodies need comes from diet.
