Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) is a condition that is mainly caused by a food allergy. It causes a reaction in which the esophagus becomes inflamed due to a build-up of white blood cells called eosinophils.
EoE more commonly occurs in males and can be diagnosed at any age. Unlike other food allergies like Cow Milk Allergy, EoE is a chronic condition that typically lasts into adulthood. The symptoms can include difficulty swallowing, pain, regurgitation, nausea, heartburn, abdominal or chest pain, and weight loss.
Not as common as other food allergies, EoE affects about 5-6 people of every 10,000 people in the US. However, as awareness of EoE increases, this prevalence could change.

Remington was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) at the age of 3. All foods were removed from his diet when he was 4, and he has been using Neocate® Splash ever since. There are still no safe foods for him, but his nutrition doesn’t stop him from leading a normal adult life.**
