Diverticular Disease- New concepts in it's pathophysiology & treatment
The incidence of diverticular disease (DD) of the colon has been increasing worldwide and is particularly common in Western nations.
In this presentation, Dr. Hawrelak will review the research around DD prevalence and its aetiology, as well as delving into the role of dysbiosis, chronic low-grade inflammation, and metabolic dysfunction in its pathophysiology.
He will also discuss the therapeutic potential of probiotics, prebiotics, microbiota manipulation, dietary supplements and herbal medicines in its treatment.
