One of the ailments that have abdominal pain and fever as predominant signs is diverticulosis.

What is Diverticulosis?
Diverticulosis is a health condition wherein tiny pockets occur in the wall or lining of a portion of the digestive tract. These pockets are called diverticula and when these get inflamed or infected it is called diverticulitis. Diverticulosis is usually asymptomatic whereas diverticulitis is painful. Diverticula most commonly occur in the lower portion of the large intestine, called colon. This condition is rare in people below thirty years of age and more common in people who are above sixty years of age. Generally, men are more prone to this condition than women.
Symptoms of Diverticulosis:
Often, diverticulosis doesn’t show any symptoms but, some people may have –
- Abdominal pain or cramping
As diverticulosis doesn’t show any symptoms in many people, it is often diagnosed while screening for other conditions.
Symptoms of Diverticulitis:
Diverticulitis, the inflamed or infected condition of the diverticula, shows various symptoms that include –
- Abdominal pain, usually on the left side
- Painful or painless rectal bleeding or bloody stools
- Irregular bowel movements
Causes of Diverticulosis and Diverticulitis:
The precise cause of diverticulosis is unknown, however, it is understood that the strain during bowel movements increases the pressure in your colon and due to this, the inner layer of the digestive tract pushes through the weak spots in the outer layer of the digestive tract. This condition is common in American people while it is not so in the Asian and African people. It is understood that a low-fiber diet leading to constipation is one of the major reasons for the high prevalence of diverticulosis in American people. It is a known fact that low-fiber diet results in constipation that increases the pressure on the digestive tract causing strain during bowel movements. Therefore, people with a combination of pressure and strained bowel movements for several years have a high risk of developing diverticulosis.
