Tips and advice for parents of a child suffering from Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE)
I've written a few posts of our battle with my daughter's Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE). EE is a disease that is an allergic reaction in the esophagus, the tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach. Eosinophilic Esophagitis is an inflammatory condition in which the wall of the esophagus becomes filled with large numbers of eosinophils, a type of white blood cell. The most common symptoms of EE in children are abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, coughing, and failure to thrive. Basically, EE equates to having severe (or numerous) food allergies.
