Got no milk?

Dietary and other approaches to managing EoE.

Removing milk and other potential food allergens may be the key to mitigating eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) in your patients. In the Emerging Therapeutic Approaches for Managing Eosinophilic Esophagitis educational series, Ikuo Hirano, MD, Northwestern University, and Evan Dellon, MD, MPH, University of North Carolina, discuss food allergens that may cause EoE as well as pharmacological interventions to put the condition in remission. In this three-part series, review:

  • The pathogenesis of EoE.
  • Diagnostic approaches in children and adults.
  • Using novel therapeutic approaches.

In the opening module, learn the symptomatic and clinical manifestations, risk factors, pathogenesis and diagnosis of EoE in children and adults.

In the second module, examine pharmacologic management therapies such as proton pump inhibitors and topical corticosteroids.

In the final module, understand dietary approaches, endoscopic dilation, biologics therapies and refractory EoE that can mitigate the condition.
