Tests and investigations

The management of diverticular disease depends upon the symptoms and severity. Surgical removal of the affected colon may be considered in individuals with severe disease. The part of the affected colon is surgically resected and removed and the ends sutured back. The individual needs adequate rest for weeks after the surgery. However, mild cases may be managed with medications only which include pain killers and antibiotics. Sometimes medications may be needed to control rectal bleeding and prevent blood loss and resulting anaemia. Moreover, it is advisable to consult a nutritionist to make dietary modifications which may help in controlling the disease and preventing further complications.
