Eosinophilic disorders are often misdiagnosed and misunderstood because the symptoms are shared with a number of conditions (See PDF - What else can eosinophilia be from?). 

Though these conditions are lifelong, the disease activity and symptoms of these disorders can be effectively managed in many cases by the dedicated and consistent care of families and healthcare professionals, such as the multidisciplinary team of specialists at the Cincinnati Center for Eosinophilic Disorders (CCED), who are researching improved treatments and a cure

At present, the two main treatments for eosinophilic disorders, such as eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs) and hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) are steroids and dietary therapy. Steroids and dietary therapy can be used singly or together. Which treatments are used depends on the eosinophilic condition. 

What is the treatment for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE)?
EoE responds well to topical steroids and/or dietary therapy. Esophageal dilation is sometimes used to relieve dysphagia, a common symptom of EoE.

What is the treatment for eosinophilic gastritis (EG)?
EG responds well to systemic steroids, but dietary therapy is less effective than for EoE. 

What is the treatment for eosinophilic colitis (EC)?
EC responds well to systemic steroids, but dietary therapy is less effective than for EoE.

What is the treatment for eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE)?
EGE responds well to systemic steroids, but dietary therapy is less effective than for EoE.

What is the treatment for hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES)?
HES responds well to systemic steroids. Dietary therapy is not a treatment option for HES.
