Low Fiber/Residue diet
Dietary fiber is an important component of a well-balanced diet. It helps us stay regular and regulates how we absorb nutrients.
Fiber is also called roughage because it’s hard to digest. For certain people, a high fiber diet can cause discomfort and problems. For example, people with wounds in their colon may find high fiber foods too rough. This may include people who have recently had abdominal surgery and those with colitis and diverticulitis. For others, too much fiber can cause bloating and gas.
