I would like to know if there is similarity between crohn’s disease and diverticulitis. My friend thinks there is, although I am not sure. I know that crohn’s is a form inflammatory bowel disease. Diverticulitis is a bulgy formation in the intestine wall. Maybe I am wrong. I would like to hear your opinions.

Hello to you too. I have to correct something. Diverticulosis is a bulgy formation in the intestine wall. If this gets inflamed, then we can talk about diverticulitis. Diverticulosis is quite common for people over 40. I think that there is not link between these two entities. Crohn’s disease is more severe since it cannot be cured. It can even develop cancer in some smaller percentage of the patients. Diverticulosis can be surgically repaired. I hope this helps. Bye!
