I was instructed by my NP to stay on a low residue/low fiber diet until in remission (which has been months now without remission). I pretty much eat when was listed on the diet. I also have IBS and a few diverticuli pockets. I am not sure about helping but seems to be ok for me. I do know that when I eat high fiber anything I get a LOT of gas!!
