Eosinophilic Esophagitis Treatment
The most effective eosinophilic esophagitis treatment is offered by the allergists at Asthma & Allergy Consultants. Same-day appointments for eosinophilic esophagitis are available now at our metro Atlanta allergy clinics in Sandy Springs, Roswell, Duluth and Cumming, Georgia.
Treatment for eosinophilic esophagitis is most effective if the allergen trigger can simply be eliminated from your environment or diet. If this is not possible, we may recommend a medication to alleviate your allergy or a desensitization plan to build up your immunity to the allergy.
Eosinophilic Esophagitis Diagnosis
Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an allergic condition in which the esophagus becomes inflamed. This allergic response occurs when your immune system creates white blood cells to combat an allergen. The inflammation makes eating painful and in severe cases food may become impacted, which can lead to a serious medical emergency. EoE affects both children and adults alike.
Eosinophilic Esophagitis Symptoms
- Difficulty swallowing
- Abdominal pain
Most patients who are experiencing eosinophilic esophagitis are also suffering from other conditions such as allergies, asthma or eczema. Gastroenterologists often refer patients suffering from EoE to an allergist because the condition is caused by an allergic reaction.
Our allergists will diagnose with allergy testing and identify the allergens that are causing your eosinophilic esophagitis. Whatever your circumstances, at Allergy & Asthma Consultants, a positive long-term result is the primary goal of our allergy doctors and we will take the time necessary to develop a custom plan to eliminate your EoE.
