Food Avoidance and Drug-Free Remission in Adults with Eosinophilic Esophagitis

A recent study published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (JACI) documented remission of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) in 3/4 of affected adults who eliminated cereals, milk, eggs, seafood, legumes, peanuts and soy for 6 weeks.

 

The researchers also found:

  • Milk, egg, wheat and legumes were the most common causes of EoE.
  • Food allergy testing (for IgE hypersensitivity) was not a useful guide to determine food triggers.
  • Continued avoidance of these food trigger maintained disease remission for up to 3 years.
