Customer: replied 14 days ago.
what does it involve
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 14 days ago.

Acute diverticulitis is caused by the bacterial infection of the colon pouches.
Sometimes, there can be perforation of the pouch causing peritonitis from spread of infection.
The root cause is bacterial infection.

You will need antibiotic course with ciprofloxacin and metronidazole for a week.

CT scan of abdomen with contrast is recommended sooner than later in hospital for diagnosis.
This can come through food or water.
Sometimes, the bacteria in the colon may become aggressive as well.
Constipation, improper diet are common causes of diverticular disease.
These factors can be addressed by high fiber diet.
Stool softeners like metamucil, methyl cellulose can be used to ensure regular bowel movement.
Probiotics also help to promote good colon health.
Probiotic substitute the bad bacteria in the colon with friendly bacteria.
Foods high in fiber include vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), whole-wheat flour and wheat bran.
Initially you should cook your vegetables well to make the fibers soluble for easy digestion.
