A:

>Appendicitis isn’t necessarily preventable, but you can reduce your risk for appendicitis by improving your diet. People who regularly eat high-fiber foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, are less likely to experience appendicitis. If you’re concerned about appendicitis, avoid processed foods and foods that contain very little fiber.
