    Hi Cara,

    I recently had a colonoscopy which showed severe diverticular disease and also had blood work. The blood work checks for inflammation and autoimmune disorders. Needless to say autoimmune results were on the low side. Hope this helps.

    I am also guessing since we have diverticulitis some of us, like me, I am on a liquid diet and eat almost the same boring liquid food for few weeks now and the blood test can show that I am not anemic?
