I'm asian, am I susceptible to diverticulitis and diverticulitis?

What's your diet? Diverticulosis and diverticulitis are far more common in western countries; this is believed to be due to the high red meat, low fiber diet we are famous for. If you live in the us and have adopted a western diet, the risk of diverticular disease is present regardless of your country of origin.
Ethnic. Background only plays a role as it relates to diet. Hi fiber diet with vegetables and fruit, common in asian populations, seems to have a protective effect but anyone can get diverticulitis.
