This medical condition is also common for people in Britain,
Australia and Canada but less common in Asia and Africa. But
what is diverticulitis that makes it a serious condition that
requires immediate attention and why is this condition less
common for Asians and Africans? This condition develops from
diverticulosis and this condition involves the formation of
pouches known as diverticula on the outside of the person’s
colon. There is diverticulitis if the diverticula on that area
have become inflamed.
There are studies and researches that have been published
that linked the intake of dietary fibers to the disease. Based
on that published researches, if a person’s diet is low in
fiber content and high in fat then the person will have a
higher risk of developing the condition. Diet plays a crucial
role in the development of the disease. A diet with a high
intake of meat and red meat and coupled with age also adds to
the pressure on the colon and in the process this will lead to
the weakening of the colon walls. Diet that is rich in
vegetables is a deterrent for this disease.
Most of the time, the person who has this condition will
often show minimal or no symptoms at all. But the most common
sign of this disease is abdominal pain. And another common sign
is the tenderness that can be felt on the lower abdomen of the
person. At times, an infection is the reason why this condition
develops. When that happens, the observable symptoms may
include nausea, vomiting, feeling hot though no fever is
registered and constipation. Symptoms may vary from person to
person and the variation in symptoms depends largely on the
extent of the infection and the complication.
If a person has this disease, immediate attention by doctors
is required. At the earliest stage of the disease, the person
with the disease is usually treated with conservative medical
management which includes bowel rest, the adoption of IV fluid
resuscitation and the intake of many antibiotics. If there are
recurring attacks of the disease or if complications may arise,
then the patient may be required to undergo surgery. Surgery at
this stage can be done immediately or on an elective basis.
Once the medication has been ended or the surgery has ended,
the patient will be placed on a low residue diet. In a low
residue diet, the patient’s colon will be given a time to heal.
After this stage, the patient will be placed on a high fiber
diet. For the simplest forms of diverticulitis, the patient
will usually respond to conservative therapy coupled with bowel
rest and the intake of antibiotics.
