Diverticulitis is a common form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Many people develop small pouches (diverticula) in the lining of their colon that bulge outward through weak spots, usually in the large intestine. This is called diverticular disease. The condition of having diverticula is called diverticulosis. When the diverticulae become infected and inflamed, it’s called diverticulitis.
Ten to 25 percent of people with diverticulosis develop diverticulitis. Diverticulosis can remain undetected for many years, but when a pouch becomes infected, it can cause serious diverticulitis symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, constipation, or loose bowel movements and diarrhea. Mild diverticulitis symptoms may be confused with overlapping symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
