Just had a bad diverticulitis Attack and guilty of eating nuts and not being careful with fruit skins etc.

Some research says it doesn’t make any difference what one eats!

    I stay away from nuts seeds skins red meat   I know it's boring but I haven't had an attack for over a year due to not eating these   I would love a burger or a drink of fizzy pop. But it's not worth the problems. I don't listen to DRS I took my advice from this forum and it works for me

    I was diagnosed 3 yrs ago by a top consultant who specialises in DD. He also said to eat whatever I wanted as they now dispel the fact that some foods cause a flare up. I’ve only had 2 flare ups since  taking that advice however judging by the comments here it’s obvious that some things can cause a flare up. Everyone is different and what works for one doesn’t work for another. Perhaps some of the medical staff should realise this.

    I try to avoid all food that is hard to digest, which makes eating out difficult!  I recently came back from Canada where I ate a lot of steak, what a mistake I had one of the worst DV attack ever.
