My EoE son is 4.5, and was born with esophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula. It seems that many kids born wih his birth defect also get EoE diagnoses later down the road. Nearly all of the EA/TEF kids are on a PPI, so symptoms are often masked during EGDs.
In any event, we got the diagnosis 8 weeks ago, and made the decision to manage purely by diet. Are any of you able to do the same, or is it a foregone conclusion that he will need a PPI or corticosteroid?
Anybody been able to target the allergens? If you have been living with this for any length of time would you share your experience, please? TIA
