Our expert says:
In view of the patient's advanced age, debilitated condition and severity of the diverticulitis, I would strongly recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings) for the name of your nearest dietitian), because the patient requires special foods and supplements. In the meanwhile, I would recommend that you use a meal replacement such as Ensure or Compleatcare (Nutricia). You can also phone the Nutricia Criticare number at 0800-006-693 (Toll free) for advice on the best type of supplement you can use under these circumstances.
