Diverticulites

Re this feedback you gave Dr Bets, can you maybe indicate which antibiotics are best for treating DIverticulites please. Thanks very much

Your reply:You may need to temporarily avoid all whole grains, fruits and vegetables, so the colon can rest and heal. Unfortunately you may need antibiotics - ask your doctor if he will be willing to give you a prescription for antibiotics to keep in the house for a flare up.
