Diverticular disease, also known under the name of diverticular disease, is a fairly common disease. Small pockets (diverticula) are formed in the walls of the large intestine, and may be ignited or infected. This is called diverticulitis (suffix itis designating the presence of inflammation). The diverticulitis periods may be more or less common in people with diverticular disease. Fortunately, there is a way to prevent diverticulitis and training new diverticula, and to extend the holding phase. It is a suitable diet!
After an acute episode of diverticulitis, follow a restricted fiber diet for 3 weeks to allow the digestive system to rest and heal. A "recipe diverticulitis" then contain very little fiber. Then, gradually increase the intake of dietary fiber on another period of 3 weeks. At the end of it, to prevent the return of an episode of diverticulitis, we can move to a high-fiber diet (at least 25 grams per day for a woman, about 38 grams for a man). Do not forget also to drink more because the fibers absorb the liquid.
