Diagnosis of Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) can be a complex condition to diagnose as its symptoms are similar to other food-related allergies such as Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER). Patients with EoE often have two or more food allergies including milk and wheat. These food allergies can be identified with the help of an elimination diet. This helps your doctor know which special diet is needed to help ease the symptoms.

EoE needs to be diagnosed through an endoscopy and biopsy. The endoscopy allows doctors to go into the patient’s digestive tract and take a tissue sample. A biopsy is performed on the sample to determine whether there is inflammation and how many eosinophils are present in the tissue.

EoE can be a complex condition to diagnose as it may show the same signs and symptoms as other food allergy- related conditions,
