EOE stands for Eosinophilic Esophagitis, yeah I can’t say it either 😉
Last June, actually Fathers Day, I choked on a piece of steak and to make a long story short, I was diagnosised with EOE. I had no idea what that was and I had never even heard of it. But since then, I have learned more and more and I have had 4 (tomorrow 5) EGDs. Since the last one in October, I have been on a Gluten and Dairy free diet. EOE is an allergy to certain foods, so we are trying an elimination diet.
So hopefully tomorrow, after my next EGD, this elimination diet worked and my tests look better. But then again, I may have another elimination added to my diet.
This gluten and dairy free diet, has been tough, not only for me but for my family as well. we’ve made some big changes, but they have all been so supportive and working on this right along with me! This is something I am forever grateful for, our family is a team and we got each others back. Missing some of my favorites like pizza, lasagna and ice cream makes me sad…but it really could be much worse and I am so thankful my family is standing right next to me!
I will keep you updated as I learn more. But to start if you’re interested, check this out: https://www.gastro.org/practice-guidance/gi-patient-center/topic/eosinophilic-esophagitis-eoe
Have a blessed weekend,
