TJC18 posted:
I have had abdominal problems including diverticulitis/losis for 5 years, I am 28. I still frequently have severe abdominal pain, ribbon thin bowel movements. Recently I have been experiencing discoloration in my bowels, whenever I drinik red gatorade, my bowels are bright red. I am beginning to get concerned, any idea if this is something to do with diverticulitis, or something more serious?

TJC, have you tried discontinuing the gatorade to see if your fecal material returns to a more normal color? If it doesn't, you should check with your doc.
