Is Diverticulitis hereditary and contagious?
A friend of mine has recently had diverticulitis and she's wondering whether the disease is hereditary or contagious because it has her family very worried. I told her to ask for professional advice because we have no idea whether diverticulitis is something you can heal from quickly or if it's something dangerous and contagious, we don't even know if it's hereditary. But just in case, I told her that she should stay away from people until she's fine again. However, no one in her family has had it before, so it must not be hereditary. Does anyone know if Diverticulitis is contagious?
