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.
