Eosinophilic Esophagitis Clinic :: Treatment

There is no exact “cure” for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Because every patient’s case is different, the CHOC Children's Eosinophilic Esophagitis Clinic's team of allergists, gastroenterologists, and dietitians works together to develop the best course of treatment for each patient based upon his or her test results and medical history. Often, treatment plans will need to be altered as doctors and other specialists monitor the patient’s progress. 
 
Treatment plans are made by combining the following according to the child's specific needs:
 
The practice of eliminating foods that may cause a child's EoE symptoms.

 
Elemental Diet
An elemental diet may be recommended if a child has severe symptoms, if all food allergy testing was negative or if previous treatment options have been unsuccessful. All regular foods and beverages are removed from the child's diet and special formulas are used to meet the child's nutritional needs.

 
Once a patient's eosinophils have cleared, foods are reintroduced to help further narrow down the exact allergens that cause EoE symptoms.

 
For some patients, dietary changes may not be enough or possible and medications may be needed to treat EoE symptoms. As new information becomes available, so do many new clinical trials and treatments.
