Abstract

Proper nutrition and a high-fiber diet are the keys to preventing diverticular disease, which affects at least 50% of the U.S. population older than age 60. If your patient has been diagnosed with diverticulosis, treatment focuses on lifestyle changes such as dietary modifications to prevent infection, known as diverticulitis. We deliver the goods on this prevalent condition.
