    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    My husband, 72 years old, is in the hospital with recently diagnosed
    colitis. He also has diverticulosis, and acid reflux. I need a diet that is compatible for all three of these disorders. I'm not sure where to turn as one diet says low fiber another high fiber another says something else.
    Appreciate any help or comments.
    Can colitis be managed with just diet and no meds?

    Esterbeth, what form of colitis was he diagnosed with? Was it a form of microscopic colitis such as lymphocytic or collagenous colitis? If so, there could be a dietary tie-in that may also 'tie-in' with his acid reflux.
