What is Diverticulitis?

Diverticulitis occurs when diverticula in the colon become inflamed or infected. These pouches, typically formed due to weak spots in the colon wall, can trap stool and bacteria, leading to inflammation. Symptoms range from mild discomfort to severe pain, often accompanied by fever, nausea, and changes in bowel habits. Prompt medical attention is essential to manage symptoms and prevent complications such as abscesses or perforations.

Depending on the severity of symptoms and complications, treatments may include antibiotic therapy to manage infection, dietary modifications to ease bowel strain, and in severe cases, surgical intervention to remove affected portions of the colon.
