Diverticulitis Advice needed please

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

Recently, diagnosed with diverticulitis and need some advice. I have been on gluten free diet for a long time. My GP advised with trying to add wheat.

Many sites have mentioned to add wheat, wheat bran and else to a diverticulitis diet.

Has anyone come across anyone with diverticulitis and have had success with wheat elimination?  Or know of any connection there?
Thanks!

If you are on a gluten-free diet because of Celiac Disease - this is very irresponsible of your doctor!  YOU CAN NEVER  EAT WHEAT!

The first link gives some sound advice diet wise if you have an active bout of infection.  However it is best to look for advice on sites like PubMed, Medscape etc rather than from sites that are trying to sell you something.  An active case of diverticulitis often requires hospitalization and IV antibiotics and is extremely painful. If this is not the case with you then you have diverticulosis.

As to the add in wheat, if you are gluten free there is no reason to do so. There are lots of other sources of soluable and insoluable fiber.
