Another Health Issue.

Recommended Posts

9Last week following a  test on my bowel.Due to the screening test.I was told I had diurticulitis.Something I've never heard  of before.Ive been having problems with my stomach  since September.So on the one hand I'm pleased now knowing what is causing  the pain. The test for me  a CT and the camera,I was in lots of pain.Thankfully that's improved a bit.There are triggers with some foods that cause pain and discomfort. I'm  keeping a food diary.Yesterday fine until about 8.00,then pain.May of been Due to piece of  Swiss roll  of all things.

So yet again  another  fight.

Sorry to hear that Ian. I suffer with diverticular issues too, but just got told the issue and it stopped there, so I had to figure things out for myself. Hopefully the food diary is indicative of your getting more help and proper follow-up.

Mine was made worse by lactose intolerance, so I've switched to lactose free everything - but the main issue for me was very high fibre foods, particuarly things like sweetcorn. I'm the 3rd generation to suffer in my family. My grandmother had similar issues and rigourously avoided tomato seeds and cucumber skin, which she thought was an issue for her.

Fingers crossed you get some answers so you can help figure out your own trigger foods soon.
