Were you looking for information about Diverticulosis? Diverticulos is a common misspelling of diverticulosis.
Diverticulosis occurs when small pouches (called diverticula) bulge outward through weak spots in the colon. Most healthcare providers believe that these pouches form when pressure inside the colon builds, usually because of constipation. For most people with diverticulosis, eating a high-fiber diet is the only treatment needed. You can increase your fiber intake by eating whole-grain breads and cereals; fruit like apples and peaches; and vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, spinach, and carrots.
