What is the difference between diverticulosis and diverticulitis?

Diverticulosis is a condition where pouches in your colon (large intestine) bulge through weak spots in the outer colon wall. A majority of adults have some form of diverticulosis. Diverticulitis is when the pouches become inflamed or infected; a more serious ailment. Most people do not develop diverticulitis.
