In brief: Hmmm.

For many years nuts were said to trigger diverticulitits and risk of bleeds; current evidence is ambiguous.
I tell patients that if nuts bother them (pain...) avoid them but if not, eat in moderation.

In brief: No

It has been a myth c grains including almonds in colon disturbances , but even in diverticulosis there is no cause -effect to cause problems.
