Eosinophilic esophagitis does not have a cure.
There is currently no end for this disease, and little is known about what triggers it. Most of the time, it’s a food protein, though some children seem triggered by things in their environment. The food triggers can change over the years, which is what informed the comment I heard soon after my daughter’s diagnosis from the mother of another child with this disease. When I told her that I hoped my daughter Sammi would be one of the kids who responds well to an elimination diet and finds just one or two food triggers, she said, “They lose more and more foods as they get older. Eventually they all end up on the [meal-replacement] formula.”by
