Foods to Avoid with Diverticulitis

There are some conditions out there where the foods you have to avoid are much clearer. For example, if you’re having issues with diabetes and are prediabetic, there is a laundry list of foods you’ll have to avoid, but it’s a clear list. The same thing goes for foods that could potentially trigger acid reflux. However, there are some conditions where even if you’re fully aware, they’re still a challenge to fully avoid.

In this particular list, we’re talking about diverticulitis, which is the inflammation of small growths in the digestive tract. As far as the growths are concerned, there is a chance that these diverticula, which tend to develop under pressure in the intestinal wall, are not inflamed and have no symptoms. This is known as diverticulosis.

When it starts to get inflamed and you feel the symptoms in the form of nausea, abdominal pain, and bloody bowel movements (uh oh), then it becomes diverticulitis. As such, this collection of food will have a connection to potentially triggering diverticulitis. Keep in mind that the condition is still being studied for the most part, and new developments and changes to one’s diet can still be made.
