Eosinophilic Gastritis and/or Eosinophilic Duodenitis (EG/EoD): More Common Than You Think

Recent evidence indicates that EG/EoD is highly underdiagnosed and may be more common than other gastrointestinal (GI) conditions such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease. EG/EoD is characterized by nonspecific symptoms and is often mischaracterized as a functional GI disorder such as irritable bowel syndrome or functional dyspepsia.

EG/EoD may be the identifiable cause that was missed
