Diverticular disease (DD) is a digestive disorder caused by enflamed diverticula, or pouches, in the colon. A common cause is constipation due to lack of fibre in the diet. Diverticulitis is very common, with about 60,000 new cases diagnosed each year in the UK and 300,000 in the USA. Symptoms are usually persistent abdominal pain plus disturbed bowel function (constipation or diarrhoea or alternating between the two). Diverticulitis sometimes becomes very severe leading to perforation of the bowel, forming an abscess or rarely peritonitis. This best-selling book looks at the treatment and self-management of DD - while the doctor can help, particularly with antibiotics, much can be done by the individual to minimise the effects of this condition. This new edition updates this best-selling book. Topics include: The medical treatment of diverticular disease Probiotics (‘good’ or ‘friendly’ live bacteria and yeasts said to be good for digestive health The increase of diverticular disease in the population Effects of diverticular disease

Diverticular disease first became recognised at the beginning of the 20th century and although the incidence of the disease is not known, it is considered to be a disease of the older person. This book looks at a disease that is known as a Western world disease, often called by surgeons a 'cinderella disease' as they often feel that there is little to offer the patient with uncomplicated diverticular disease. The book endeavours to give the healthcare professional a holistic view of the care and pattern of diverticular disease, and chapters may be used as stand alone chapters for those wishing to know more about stoma care, alternative treatments or food management. This book is essential reading for healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with this disease.
