Each person can experience different symptoms and have different food related triggers. It is important to have a food journal to help track what you are eating and what potential triggers you are experiencing. Managing stress can be a huge part of controlling symptoms, also ensure you are drinking lots of water throughout the day. I would suggest looking into taking a probiotic or including more probiotic rich foods into your diet like sauerkraut, kefir, miso soup, kimchi, kombucha or yogurt. Blasting with lots of dark greens can help decrease acidity and using low glycemic fruits like berries, cherries, figs, peaches, apricots, apples and pears.

I do not have cramps. This is my breakfast on most days. It keeps me quite regular, but I don't know if it would help you. with IBS and diverticolosis I have found that with a handful of blueberries, a strawberry and about a 2 inch banana, & 2 teaspoons of yogurt plus1/4cup oatmeal & a tablespoon of chia seeds , a piece of frozen spinach(kale would be better for the kidneys) almond milk to max line in a small cup helped my ibs and diverticulosis almost 100%. It seems to helps the kidneys to have about 2 inches of forzen celery.. All the fruits and vegetables are forzen. For lunch I amtrying out mushroom soup(Iknow it has some milk in it) with a tablespoon of flax seeds seeds. It seems to work well and makes me regular. But I don't know if that would be the best way to go about it yet, it is in the earliest stages.
