People with EOSINOPHILIC DISORDERS who rely on medical foods

Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is an inflammatory condition in which eosinophils (a certain type of white blood cell) infiltrate the esophageal wall. This typically occurs in response to foods or aeroallergens. Typical symptoms include difficulty swallowing, pain, nausea, regurgitation, and vomiting. Over time, the disease can cause the esophagus to narrow (a stricture), which can result in food impaction and require emergency removal.
