Diverticulitis Directory

Diverticulitis is a sometimes painful condition that develops when pouches (diverticula) that form in the wall of the colon, part of the large intestine, become inflamed or infected. Symptoms may include stomach pain, fever, bloating, diarrhea, and nausea. Doctors aren't sure what causes diverticulitis. But they think that a low-fiber diet may play a role. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about diverticulitis, what it looks like, how to treat it, and much more.
