Can diverticulosis be reversed? Say, if I really watched by diet and never got constipated?


Answers:    Unfortunately, diverticulosis cannot be reversed. Once the pockets/sacs/pouches are formed in your colon, they will stay that way. Best thing you can do is prevent anymore forming or worsening w/ diet and fiber.
Some people have surgery, but that is usually a last resort.
No. Once you have those dang little pockets on your colon, they are there for good. Your diet is extremely important so things don't get caught in there and cause diverticulitis. No seeds (poppy, sesame, strawberry, etc.) lots of fiber, don't eat a lot of red meat (if you have colon problems, it just sits in there and makes you feel gross).
