What is Eosinophilic Esophagitis?

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Aug 16, 2019 4:11:54 PM

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an allergic reaction of the food tube to either foods or inhalants. The allergic reaction causes swelling, inflammation and long term scarring of the esophagus, the food tube connecting the mouth and stomach.

According to the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders, eosinophilic esophagitis is a rare disease, but increasing in prevalence with an estimated 1 out of 2,000 people affected.

What are the Symptoms of Eosinophilic Esophagitis?

Initially, eosinophilic esophagitis was most often see in infants, but more recently, it's been seen with increasing frequency in adults.

In the early stages of this condition, patients often experience intermittent episodes of heartburn and reflux.

Over time, the swelling and inflammation from the allergic reaction and irritation may cause difficulty swallowing and occasionally food trapping, where food becomes stuck in the esophagus.

Are Food Allergies Only a Problem for Children?

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Jan 24, 2019 2:16:35 PM

Food allergies have often been thought of as a childhood affliction but a recent study reveals this isn't necessarily the case.

The study, reported on by Dr. Ruchi Gupta and her colleagues in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Network Open, involved collecting food allergy survey results from over 40,000 adults and the data revealed some surprising information.

According to the results, 10.8% of the 40,000 adults surveyed reported symptoms consistent with food allergy and an additional 8.2% believed they had some type of food allergy, however their symptoms suggested other causes. This means that one out of every five adults has some type of food related symptoms that are causing them to avoid specific foods. The most common foods causing allergies in this survey were shellfish, milk, peanuts, tree nuts and fish.
