Question:

My wife is going with a bout of diverticulitis was told to go by doctor on a liquid diet: no salt , no fiber, no milk products. Is there a list of liquids she can have? Doctor failed to give her one. Please email.

Answer:

Any liquid is fine (water, broth, tea). It does not have to be clear liquids. But if unable to tolerate liquids, she may need to be admitted for IV fluids.
