Were you looking for information on Diverticulitis? Divericulitis is a common misspelling of diverticulitis.
Diverticulitis is a medical condition in which abnormal pouches, called diverticula, form in the colon and become inflamed. While the causes of diverticulitis are unproven, most doctors believe it is linked to a low-fiber diet. Healthcare providers are also unsure what causes the inflammation, but it may occur when stool or bacteria are caught in the diverticula.
