Short Description of Diverticulitis
Diverticulitis refers to inflammation or an infection of the small pouches called diverticula that form along the bowel walls of the colon. These pouches or diverticula are generally benign and is known as diverticulosis. However, when inflammation sets in due to a small abscess on one or more of the pouches, disease sets in and it can lead to a severe infection and even perforation of the intestine and require antibiotics as part of the treatment. These diverticula can form anywhere along the digestive tract but are most commonly seen at the end of the descending colon and sigmoid colon on the left side of the abdomen.
Symptoms of Diverticulitis
- Pain is the most common manifestation of the disease, often constant and may persist for several days
- Nausea and vomiting
- Abdominal pain
- Occasionally diarrhea
- Bloody stools
Etiology Of Acute Diverticulitis
Based on recent data, approximately 50% of people are thought to have developed diverticulosis by the time they reach 50 years of age. An estimated 10 to 25 percent of these will go on to develop diverticulitis. By age 80, it is estimated that 65% of people may already have diverticulosis. According to a study done by the National Institutes of Health, the incidence of acute diverticulitis is higher among young obese adults and the report also revealed that the cost of treatment of digestive diseases has gone up to more than $141 billon per year in the US.
Quick Facts About Diverticulitis
- The disease is an infected pouch in the large intestine resulting to pain in the abdomen
- Symptoms of the disease include pain, constipation and blood on the stool
- One of the primary causes of the condition is a lack of dietary fiber
- Most people with uncomplicated diverticular disease can self-treat themselves
- Surgery is only necessary if the diverticulitis recurs often
To date, no one really knows why the diverticular pouches begin to protrude outward from the colon. However, there is evidence to show that a lack of fiber in the diet is a main cause. Diverticulosis results but is not yet considered a disease. The role of fiber is to soften stools and if one does not consume enough dietary fiber the result is hard stool that results in more pressure or strain on the colon as the muscles push the stools down. The pressure is known to be the one that causes the development of these pouches or diverticula. The diverticula occurs when there are weak spots in the outer layer of colon or bowel muscle gives way and the inner portion squeezes through. While there is no clear clinical evidence that proves a link does exist between lack of dietary fiber and the formation of diverticulosis, studies indicate that there is indeed a lot of circumstantial evidence linking the two. Just look at the data, in parts of the world such as South Asia and Africa where dietary fiber intake is high, disorders of the colon such as diverticular disease is quite rare. However, in western countries where there is low dietary fiber intake, the condition is much more commonly seen. Other reports on the other hand debunked the link between increased dietary fiber intake and diverticulitis prevention, advocating that doing so actually might increase the risk of getting diverticular disease. In the past, it is widely believed that the consumption of seeds, nuts and corn was known to increase risk but a 2008 study determined there was no danger.
While it is not really fully understood why diverticulitis happens, there are certain conditions that may make one more prone to getting this colonic condition. Bacteria in the stool spread rapidly and cause an infection. It is widely believed that a diverticulum can become blocked by a piece of stool which later on leads to an infection. Risk factors for diverticulitis are as follows:
- Age, older adults are known to be at higher risk compared to younger persons to get diverticulosis
- Obesity is a known risk factor for developing colonic or diverticular disorders
- Lack of physical activity or exercise
- A diet that is quite high in animal fat and low in dietary fiber
- Certain medications like steroids, opiates and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen
- Studies also show that genes may play a role in development of acute diverticulitis
Patients with diverticulitis may be required to go on a special diet so as to give the digestive tract a chance to rest. At first, only clear liquids may be given to patients for a few days and these include:
- Ice chips
- Fruit juice without pulp
- Ice pops
- Tea and coffee but without cream
When the symptoms are controlled, patients with acute diverticulitis may be given low-fiber foods such as:
- Canned or cooked fruits, skinned or seedless veggies
- Eggs, fish and poultry
- Low fiber cereals
- Refined white bread
- White rice, noodles and pasta
- Cheese, yogurt and milk
Foods to Avoid in Diverticulitis
As to why acute diverticulitis happens is still a big mystery, the National Institutes of Health say that there are no particular foods to exclude from the diet that can improve the symptoms of the disease. The high fat, low fiber diet that exemplifies western eating has been known to increase diverticulitis risk based on a recent study. In the management of acute diverticular disease it is best, therefore to lessen eating red meat, deep-fried foods, refined grains and full-fat dairy items. When it comes to disorders of the colon such as diverticulitis, food should be excluded according to individual experience. If you discover that eating a particular type of food worsens the pain in the bowel or colon, then by all means avoid it.
Complications of Acute Diverticulitis
Peritonitis – this is a type of acute infection that spreads into the lining of the abdomen if one of the infected diverticula bursts. Peritonitis is often serious and at times fatal. The condition requires immediate antibiotic treatment and in some cases surgery.
Abscess – this pertains to a pus-filled cavity that require antibiotic treatment and at times surgery in order to remove the pus.
Intestinal Obstruction – the colon may become partially or completely blocked if infection resulted to scarring. If there is complete blockage, then emergency medical intervention is needed as the blockage can result to peritonitis.
