Diverticular Disease

Diverticular Disease

Diverticular are small pouch-like structures that can form within the digestive tract. When these pouch-like structures become inflamed, it is known as Diverticulitis.

Diverticular Disease is most common in individuals over the age of 40 and is seen in more than 50% of people over the age of 80. Whilst there are a range of risk factors that influence the development and inflammation of diverticular, dietary habits play a large role.

Symptoms of diverticulitis can include:

  •   Acute / chronic abdominal pain in the lower left quadrant
  •   Bloody stool
  •   Nausea and/or vomiting
  •   Constipation
  •   Diarrhoea
  •   Stomach Distention

Diverticulitis can only be diagnosed via endoscopy / colonoscopy performed by a Gastroenterologist. Once diagnosed, a dietitian can help manage symptom flare ups of Diverticulitis through in-depth assessments of food diaries and the targeting of triggering foods.
