What is diverticulitis?

The walls of the intestines sometimes contain small pouches called diverticula. Infection of these pouches is called diverticulitis. Risk factors include chronic constipation, aging and obesity.

Symptoms related to diverticulitis

  • Abdominal pain

  • Right lower abdominal pain

  • History of diverticulitis or diverticular bleeding - small pouches in the intestines

  • Pain when pressing down on the abdomen

Questions your doctor may ask to check for diverticulitis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose diverticulitis

  • Do you have abdominal pain (stomach ache)?

  • Do you have pain in the right lower part of your abdomen (stomach)?

  • Have you ever been diagnosed with an outpouching of the intestine (diverticula) or inflammation of the outpouchings (diverticulitis)?

  • Do you feel severe pain when pressing on your abdomen (stomach)?

Treatment for diverticulitis

The treatment for this includes adequate fluid, resting the gut and antibiotics. Patients may be advised to eat less solid foods while the gut heals. In severe or repeated cases, surgery may be needed to remove parts of damaged intestines.
