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.
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.
