Diverticulitis refers to little pockets of inflamed or infected skin that may grow within your intestinal system. It's often not serious and you may not even notice you have it. Most cases can be treated with rest and a light diet, but if it's causing you pain or disrupts your bowel movements, you should visit a local Carbon Health for examination.
Diverticulitis occurs when small pouches in the colon called diverticula become infected or inflamed. It is caused by a combination of factors such as a low-fiber diet, aging, genetics, obesity, lack of exercise, and smoking.
