Eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs) are a group of rare gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. They affect different parts of the digestive tract, from the esophagus to the large intestine.
They can affect your child's quality of life, including how they eat, grow, and develop.
EGIDs develop when eosinophils, white blood cells triggered by allergies, build up in the digestive tract lining causing swelling and discomfort.
Treatment helps manage symptoms, which vary based on where in the GI tract the eosinophils are and how severe the condition is.
EGID symptoms can include:
