Accomodating kidney diseases in the school
The elevated number of eosinophils cause injury and inflammation to the esophagus.
People with Eo E commonly have other allergic diseases such as rhinitis, asthma, and/or eczema.
Infants and toddlers often refuse their food or have trouble growing properly.
School-age children may have recurring abdominal pain, trouble swallowing, or vomiting.
Certain families may have an inherited tendency to develop Eo E. A gastroenterologist must evaluate a patient for the symptoms consistent with eosinophilic esophagitis, taking a careful history.
Since Eo E can mimic other conditions, more common diseases such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) must first be ruled out. During this procedure, the patient is sedated or put under anesthesia, and a small tube called an endoscope is inserted through the mouth.
