Eosiniphilic Disorder
0

5 posts in this topic

I was just getting a much-needed haircut, and the TV was on --Montel was doing a show on eosiniphilic disorders. Unfortunately, the volume was off, but I saw printed on the screen something about eosiniphilic disorder causing 20 different food allergies in one child.

I have to run, but if someone has time to look for a link, that could help some people here! Otherwise, I'll try to find and post one when I get back tonight!

It looks like this is one of the topics being discussed today--I found this--

http://www.montelshow.com/show/?showID=4996

As luck would have it, I saw this post at 1:58, and Montel goes on here at 2PM. I ran downstairs to set the Tivo--I plan to watch it later. I have numerous food intolerances, so I'm very interested in this, as are many others here, I'm sure.

I posted this on the other thread, too, but thank you ladies.

to all-I am currently being tested for eosinophillic disorders. they can affect children and/or adults. once thought to be rare, they now believe that they have the same or higher incidence of much more well known diseases like Crohns. the disease can include one---or multiple---food allergies OR intolerances, as well as environmental sensitivities/allergies as well.

Does anyone know if this show will be on again and if so, when?

I just posted an update on my son on another thread..."Dr. thinks it might be eosinophilic esophagitis, not celiac." The doctor's even more sure this is what my son has and I would LOVE to see this show.

I googled "cured foundation" it was shown in the Montel show description, here is the website:

In the "about us" section of the website it has the story of Joni's medical condition.

    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
    • Tell us how it acts please. Just looking at pictures doesn't give much info. It could be, it could not be. The best way to find out is if you're eating a gluten diet to go to a derm & INSIST, INSIST on getting a dh biopsy. Make sure they do it right. Read a couple of threads here & you'll find links to info. that tells exactly how it's to be done and it's NOT ON a lesion so make sure they don't pull that little number on you. They work for YOU, not the other way around. Make them prove it isn't dh by doing a biopsy the correct way. Do NOT take any oral steroids or get steroid shots within 2 months prior. You're going to have to be extremely firm with them but don't let them deter you from the course. Challenge them to prove what it isn't because they can't prove it's contact dermatitis.
