I just found out my grandma is in the hospital because she was experiencing severe vomiting and diarrhea and was very dehydrated. My mom said she thought the condition sounded something like "diviculitis" but wasn't sure on the exact word. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I did an internet search, but nothing much comes up. I'd appreciate knowing the correct tem! Thanks!

Diverticulitis. A condition in w/the intestines form little pouches that trap food and become inflammed. They sometimes rupture.

Often, the patient will be placed on a diet low in roughage,w/out seeds and so on.

I hope you grandmother feels better soon Jackie
