that patients had a higher chance of being cured from their diverticulitis symptoms within 3 months. 7. Which findings related to fiber and disease prevention have less certain evidence? What makes the evidence uncertain? This article shows the results of antibiotic therapy along with a high fiber diet in relation to diverticulitis prevention. Because the article states that fiber treatment alone is inconclusive, I think that the antibiotics are more helpful. The article does state “acute diverticulitis occurred in 2.8% or the fiber alone group as compared with the 1% of the treatment” (Moubax, & Urbain, 2015). This finding is when the looked at the long-term effects of fiber and antibiotics. 8. Thinking about your own diet, what changes could you make to your own dietary habits to increase the amount of fiber you eat? Identify at least two specific foods you can add to your diet to improve your fiber intake. I know I need to be eating more fruits and vegetables. Both food groups contain the best source for dietary fiber. I can start packing an apple and some carrots for lunch at work. Another easy diet change to add more fiber into a diet would be to switch white bread with whole grain.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
