Diet For Person With Diverticulitis

Causes Of Diverticulitis:

The common condition of having pouches in the intestines is called Diverticulosis.  When these pouches become inflamed, the condition is called Diverticulitis.  2-3% of people suffer from Diverticulitis.  The disease is believed to be caused mainly by the low fiber diet used in the modern, industrialized world.  The NIH has more detailed information on how diet relates to Diverticulitis and Diverticulosis

Signs And Symptoms Of Diverticulitis:

Common symptoms are cramps, bloating, constipation and abdominal pain.  The most common sign is tenderness along the Left side of the lower abdomen.  Fever, nausea, vomiting and chills may occur if infection is involved. 

The severity of the symptoms depends on the extent of the infection.  Diverticulitis can lead to intestinal bleeding, perforation, tears and blockages.

Diet For Someone Who Has Diverticulitis:

A high fiber diet is the best treatment for diverticulitis.  This diet should contain lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains and beans.  Here is a list of high fiber foods to add to your diet.

Along with adding the above foods to your diet, you need to reduce foods that counteract fiber.  These foods are sugars, salts, cheeses, other dairy foods (yogurt is OK), beef.

Once you've made these dietary changes, the disease should be under control. 

Treatment Of Diverticulitis:

In addition to the above diet, the doctor may prescribe mild pain medicine.  A serious attack may require hospital care or surgery.

Complete Healing:

If you're looking to improve your health and fitness, you probably want a healthy life...including mind, body and spirit.  You can renew your mind and spirit with God's help.  He can heal the stuff your diet doesn't control.  If you want His help, go to Healing From God.
