So now doctors say it's okay for patients suffering from diverticular disease to eat nuts and seeds. So why is it when I eat nuts and seeds I get a flare up? I just spent the summer enjoying wonderful whole grain breads and rolls covered with pumpkin seeds and desserts with poppy seeds thinking I no longer had to worry about my diverticulae, that seeds were not the culprit.
Of course the stressors in my life haven't changed, so do I blame the stress or the seeds for the two weeks of diarrhea and pain and the eventual need for codeine, antibiotics and a liquid diet. After three days, I'm finally feeling relief, but do I ban the seeds? I think so. Anyone else skip them?
