Unknown : Nobody knows exactly how long before a diverticulum becomes blocked until infection sets in. It's also unclear exactly get the relationship between diet (e.g. Seeds) and diverticulitis is. If your diet makes it worse, alter it accordingly.

It will be impossible to say why or how any one person develops diverticulitis.
