Eosinophilic Esophagitis Treatments

Eosinophilic Esophagitis/Gastroenteritis

The number of children and young adults being diagnosed with chronic allergic inflammation of the esophagus has been rising in recent years. It seems to be due to both increased awareness as well as increase in prevalence of the disease. If you suffer from symptoms of heart-burns, chest pains associated with food intake or feeling of food "getting stuck in your throat", you want to seek help of our gastrointestinal allergy experts to have evaluation for food allergies and to rule out eosinophilic esophagitis. 

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE or EoE) and Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis are complex, chronic allergic inflammatory disorders involving different segments of gastrointestinal tract (GI). The hallmark of the inflammation is a presence of eosinophils, otherwise rare inflammatory white blood cells. Symptoms may vary significantly, but frequently include chest pain, heartburn, difficulty swallowing, vomiting, a feeling of "food getting stuck in the throat," poor weight gain in children and early satiety.

The symptoms and even the inflammation in GI tract may be very similar to that found in acid reflux and/or food allergies. Patients with EE have higher prevalence of both environmental and food allergies and the latter may play a role in the development of the disease. Thus, comprehensive allergy evaluation by well-trained allergist is critical for the successful treatment of the disease. Our board certified allergists at Allergy and Asthma Clinical Centers have both experience and expertise required to diagnose this complex disorders and to devise a comprehensive treatment plan.
