Hi Gigi, welcome to HW :) Since you have diverticulosis to get the fiber you need, instead of relying on a high fiber diet, you can try a fiber supplement such as Benefiber, Citrucel or Metamucil. Some Uc'ers can't tolerate fiber supplements though so this is trial and error. Also because of the Divert. try to avoid seeds and nuts because not only will it aggravate that but it can bother Uc'ers as well. It sounds like you are on the right diet for now though so if it is agreeing with you, try to stay with it until you feel better. This other med, is it Asacol? Great job on quitting smoking! That is a very tough thing to do. So you were diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis or just Colitis? If it's Uc, do you know the extent of the disease in your colon?
