Small pockets (diverticula) that develop in the walls of the large intestines and colon wall. Symptoms can consist of bloating, changes in bowel movements whether it be diarrhea or constipation, non-specific chronic discomfort in the lower left abdomen – sometimes sharp in nature – and abdominal pain after meals. Usually, diverticulosis is uncommon before the age of 40, and the chances of contraction on rise alongside age. A diet low in fiber, high in fat, and high in red meat can all contribute to the development of diverticulosis.
