Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

You are referring to

a) Helicobacter pylori infection
b) Diverticulitis

Helicobacter pylori is a ubiquitous organism that is present in about 50% of the world population. It can lead to atrophic and even metaplastic changes in stomach.

Diverticulitis is the inflammation of one or more diverticula, which are small pouches created by herniation of mucosa into the wall of the colon.
