A diverticulum is a small pouch in the colon that bulges outward through a weak spot, like an inner tube through a tire. The condition of having diverticula, several pouches, is called diverticulosis. When the pouches are infected or inflamed, the condition is called diverticulitis. Diverticulitis occurs in ten to twenty-five percent of people with diverticulosis.
The cause of diverticular disease is unknown; however, the onset of disease may be linked to a lack of dietary fibre, as diverticular disease is practically non-existent in societies in which high-fibre diets are the norm.

- Ensure that you are drinking enough water. Lack of water can cause constipation, worsening diverticular disease.
- A “diverticulitis diet” may be suggested by your health care practitioner, to give your digestive system a chance to rest. This type of diet begins with liquids only and slowly incorporates low-fibre solid foods.
- Avoid foods such as nuts, seeds, berries, corn, and rice, which can get trapped in diverticular pockets and cause pain and inflammation.
