Diverticulosis and Diverticulitis

If you are like many people, your colon (the large intestine) is not in perfect condition. Over time, small pouches may have formed in your colon wall. This is called diverticulosis. If these pouches become infected or inflamed, a painful and more serious problem called diverticulitis develops. Although aging may contribute to colon problems, what you eat makes the real difference in the health of your colon. We rarely see diverticular problems in countries where people eat plenty of unprocessed, high fiber foods.
