If infection has already occurred it is recommended that a person stick to a low residue diet which will have an effect much like that of constipation. This means that bowel movements will decrease and the infection or inflammation of the diverticula can have a chance to heal.

A low residue diet is one that consists of a daily intake of no more than 10 grams of fibre. While on this diet for an extended period of time it is recommended that a multi-vitamin or mineral supplement be taken daily. This ensures that minerals and vitamins lost while on the low residue diet are made by taking supplements.

Foods to avoid include:

1. whole grains
2. raw and dried fruits, sultanas, raisins, berries
3. broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage
4. all nuts and seeds
