Eosinophilic Esophagitis diet

Eosinophilic esophagitis (also called EE or EoE) affects 1 to 6 in every 10,000 Americans. This condition can occur in children and adults. It’s believed to be an allergic condition where certain foods trigger immune cells called eosinophils to attack the esophagus. This attack can lead to inflammation and damage.

Symptoms can range from chest or stomach pain, difficulty swallowing, reflux and vomiting. In children, it can manifest as irritability and difficulties with feeding and weight gain.

Studies have shown that eliminating six potential culprit foods (called a six food elimination diet or SFED) can lead to 70% response rates. This template is for the six food elimination diet that removes all milk, egg, wheat, soy, peanut/tree nut and fish/shellfish from the diet during the initial elimination phase of the diet that lasts for 6 weeks. As symptoms improve, work with your physician or dietitian to reintroduce each food group over several weeks.
