Diverticular disease

Diverticulosis SingaporeIn this case a small pouch with a narrow neck protrudes through the gut wall, most commonly in the large intestine (sigmoid colon). Diverticular disease is usually a result of not eating sufficient fibre in your diet. Hence, a high fibre diet is advised to the patients. In its acute form, diverticulitis results in severe pain, fever and sepsis. It can be detected through contrast CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis and colonoscopy.
