Celiacs And Diverticulitis

I was just diagnosed with Diverticulitis a few weeks ago and was wondering if gluten could have anything to do with it? I have taken myself off of gluten now for about 5 days and feel good. I am wondering if they could be related.

In my case they were closely related. Shortly before diagnosis I had a colonoscopy. The doctor stated that I had the most extensive diverticuli he had ever seen. Usually it is found in the left descending colon but for me it was throughout my entire large intestine. We thought perhaps it was because I have Ehlers Danlos but when I was rescoped last year, as a routine scope not for any issues, it was a big surprise to us both that almost all of the diverticuli were gone. Only a few little 'bubbles' left.

My father had that. When I found out that my son and I had celiac he got himself tested and had a negative blood test. Then he got diverticulitis and wasn't responding to any of the treatments that his doctor tried. Knowing that celiac is in the family, he decided to try eating gluten free and his symptoms went away. I did a quick google search and everything I could find said that they are not related. I'm just glad that he is feeling better. I hope you do too.
