Diverticulosis/Diverticulitis mostly affects large intestine. If you need answer to the point, then I should say that it definitely effects some part of the digestion process of foods. Treatment of this condition mainly includes gradual implementation of more fiber XXXXXXX diet and also increasing the amount of water and fluid intake.
