I'm really interested in hearing what peoples experiences have been on the progression of DD over several years? It seems to me that we all really have two mountains to climb here: the first and most immediately important one is to determine our individual triggers (and some of the excellent discussion groups and contributors in the forum have really helped me - thanks guys). The second is to see if we can slow the progression of the DD down or even stop it. The (my!) hope is that the high fiber, low red meat, lots of water style diet will do this, but I was wondering if any one has evidence that this is the case? For example, Ive had two colonoscopies 5 years apart, and know I've experienced substantial deteriation - ie a bunch more diverticula across the colon (though I wasnt being careful and was still eating red meat etc - didnt know any better!). I've asked some of you about this individually - if you have had several colonoscopies/CT scans spread over some years, ideally with some idea of what your diet was like over the period, it would be great to hear about it and get a sense of whether what I hope is true does actually appear to be the case!
Thanks guys and the best of luck
