Clear Liquid Diet For Diverticulitis

Diverticulitis is the disease of colon (large intestine) and is caused mainly due to the lack of fiber. The ailment can be formed almost anywhere in the digestive system, but mostly it occurs in the large intestine. The symptoms of the disease are rare and include bloating, constipation, abdominal discomfort, vomiting, nausea and at times chills and fevers. Though the precise reasons of this disease are unknown, medical professionals say that consuming diets without fiber is the main reason for the condition.

Diet Theory for Diverticulitis

It is imperative to realize the fundamentals behind a diverticulitis diet, so you have realistic expectations about the treatment. A clear liquid diet for diverticulitis will not cure or treat the situation, but it will relieve the symptoms for a certain period, while a doctor takes other steps to offset the ailment. In addition, keep in mind that a ‘diverticulitis diet’ is not a full-time affair, but is a temporary stop-gap assessment to be utilized for the time when the signs are acute and stopped as soon as possible after that. This is so because the diet does not provide the human-body with vital nutrients, thus making it a remedial measure, not a true solution.

Clear Liquid Diets for Diverticulitis

A clear liquid diet maintains minerals, salts and body fluids, and gives some energy for sufferers when the usual food consumption needs to be interrupted. ‘Clear liquids’ are absorbed easily by the body, and reduce stimulus of the digestive system. The clear liquid diet may involve coffee, tea, gelatin or jelly, broth, clear sodas, popsicles and pulp free fruit juice.

Keeping in mind that this is a temporary healing method may help people to cope with such diverticulitis dietary restrictions psychologically. Further, you should keep your caloric intake normal when following this plan to steer clear of weight loss. In other words, you can and should take calorie containing beverages for your intake. Though it may be quite intimidating to do so, you should try to take minimum of one thousand to fifteen hundred calories each day to curtail weight loss.

In order to keep away from diverticulitis, medical professionals also recommend making lifestyle changes. Since constipation elevates pressure on the walls of colon and adds to the creation of ‘diverticula’, sustaining bowl hygiene will help immensely in preventing the disease of diverticulitis.

Keeping the above mentioned diverticultis diet tips in mind will go a long way toward ensuring your well being and safeguarding against some of the terrible symptoms of Diverticulitis.
