Featured topic: eosinophilic esophagitis

Do you have trouble swallowing pills or does food get stuck when you swallow it? 

These swallowing issues are common in eosinophilic esophagitis (EE).

EE is a fairly new discovery in conditions of the GI tract. Although it’s been present for a long time, the condition has been more recognized and treated for the past 20 years.

Eosinophilic esophagitis is a condition that is often discovered when looking for a cause of food getting stuck while swallowing, difficulty swallowing or pain in your esophagus (the swallowing tube from your throat to your stomach). Your esophagus may develop changes in appearance (rings or furrows) that helps your doctor diagnose this disease. This condition may or may not occur in the presence of an allergy.

Eosinophils are white blood cells that respond to an allergic condition in your body. In the esophagus, this is thought to be related to an allergy or possibly to food. There also may be a correlation with people who have asthma, hay fever or environmental allergies, or a family history of allergies. There are treatments available that can help eliminate these symptoms. Always discuss these problems with your doctor or find a ProHealth Care physician who can help you.
