Diverticulitis is a common digestive disease particularly found in the large intestine. Diverticulitis develops from diverticulosis, which involves the formation of pouches (diverticula) on the outside of the colon. Diverticulitis results if one of these diverticula becomes inflamed.

Usually a high fiber diet is recommended.

FYI:  Diverticulosis calls for a high fiber diet.

But if you have an attack of Diverticulitis, CLEAR LIQUIDS to NO FIBER to LOW FIBER is recommended-- depending on the extent of the attack. FIBER is added on to diet only as one gets better.
