Nutritional management of eosinophilic esophagitis.
Gastrointest Endosc Clin N Am 2008; 18(1):179-94; xiGE

Abstract

Eosinophilic esophagitis has been increasingly described in pediatric and adult literature. Several pediatric studies have indicated that food allergies are responsible for more than 90% of pediatric cases. There are three different dietary approaches to the management of eosinophilic esophagitis: (1) the elemental diet, (2) the removal of foods based on allergy testing, and (3) the removal of the foods that most commonly cause eosinophilic esophagitis. This article discusses the nutritional risks and benefits of each approach.
