Diverticulosis is the presence of multiple diverticula (a herniation through the muscular wall of a tubular organ), a condition where the inner lining layer of the large intestine protrudes out through the outer muscular layer. Diverticulitis is an inflammation of diverticula in the digestive tract (especially the colon), characterized by painful Abdominal Cramping, Fever and Constipation.

The colon weakens with age and chances of developing diverticula increase with advancing age. As the pressure inside the colon increases, especially due to constipation, it causes pea shaped pouches in the intestinal wall.
