TESTIMONIAL

Here is more feedback on the benefits of chelation. Removing poisonous heavy metals helps in many ways.

"Well the results are so amazing that I still can hardly believe it.

 

First of all, I no longer have any of that angina pain.

 

Two of my toes had been completely numb -- I could stick a pin into them and not feel it.  Now I have complete and normal feeling in those toes.

 

I had a black spot below my right knee- -about as large as a baseball, and that is now getting smaller every week.  I don't really know what it was, and don't really want to know, but I DO know that I'm glad it is going away.

 

I used to fall asleep even while I was talking -- no more.

 

My constant headache is gone.

I also have a lot more energy, and am now working every day.  I had been staying home, not working...

 

Sincerely, Herman K.

Blood In the Stool

Part 5

How does the doctor diagnose diverticular disease?To diagnose diverticular disease, the doctor asks about medical history, does a physical exam, and may perform one or more diagnostic tests. Because most people do not have symptoms, diverticulosis is often found through tests ordered for another ailment.

 

The doctor will ask about medical history.

When taking a medical history, the doctor may ask about bowel habits, symptoms, pain, diet, and medications. The physical exam usually involves a digital rectal exam. To perform this test, the doctor inserts a gloved, lubricated finger into the rectum to detect tenderness, blockage, or blood. The doctor may check stool for signs of bleeding and test blood for signs of infection. The doctor may also order x rays or other tests.

What is the treatment for diverticular disease?A high-fiber diet and, occasionally, mild pain medications will help relieve symptoms in most cases. Sometimes an attack of diverticulitis is serious enough to require a hospital stay and possibly surgery.

Diverticulosis

Increasing the amount of fiber in the diet may reduce symptoms of diverticulosis and prevent complications such as diverticulitis. Fiber keeps stool soft and lowers pressure inside the colon so that bowel contents can move through easily. The American Dietetic Association recommends 20 to 35 grams of fiber each day. The table below shows the amount of fiber in some foods that you can easily add to your diet.

The doctor may also recommend taking a fiber product such as Citrucel or Metamucil once a day. These products are mixed with water and provide about 2 to 3.5 grams of fiber per tablespoon, mixed with 8 ounces of water.

 

Until recently, many doctors suggested avoiding foods with small seeds such as tomatoes or strawberries because they believed that particles could lodge in the diverticula and cause inflammation. 

 

However, this is now a controversial point and no evidence supports this recommendation. Individuals differ in the amounts and types of foods they can eat.

 

If cramps, bloating, and constipation are problems, the doctor may prescribe a short course of pain medication. However, many medications affect emptying of the colon, an undesirable side effect for people with diverticulosis.


Diverticulitis

Treatment for diverticulitis focuses on clearing up the infection and inflammation, resting the colon, and preventing or minimizing complications. An attack of diverticulitis without complications may respond to antibiotics within a few days if treated early.

 

To help the colon rest, the doctor may recommend bed rest and a liquid diet, along with a pain reliever.

An acute attack with severe pain or severe infection may require a hospital stay. 

 

Most acute cases of diverticulitis are treated with antibiotics and a liquid diet. The antibiotics are given by injection into a vein. In some cases, however, surgery may be necessary.
