Yesterday my husband went to a walk-in clinic because his doctor is away from his office until Monday. The diagnosis - diverticulitis. He was given a couple medications and advised to exist on broth and clear fluids for three days. Naturally we have been reading whatever we can find on the web. Eventually we will need to make sure he gets more fiber in his diet but for now, we just need to get him feeling better.

    At one time I had a lot of problems with diverticulitis and was hospitalized at least three times with serious problems. My cousin recommended I take Fiber Con every day and that helped.
Gradually I got away from the problem and now eat whatever I want with no side effects. But I did give up popcorn as it caused me serious problems. I think eating the SP way with more beans, etc. has been a big help.
Hope your DH can also overcome the situation!!!
