Abstract

70 patients with colic diverticular disease and 50 control subjects were compared. Sexes and ages were matched in the two groups. Significant higher frequencies of alcoholism (P < 0,00001), hyperlipidemia (P < 0,0001), impaired oral glucose tolerance test (P < 0,001), hyperuricemia (P < 0,001) and atherosclerosis (P < 0,000001) were noted in the diverticular group. Hypotheses about pathogenesis of diverticular disease are suggested.
