Dyspepsia, Acid Reflux and Celiac Disease
What is eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE)? Let's break it down: The esophagus is the long tube that connects your mouth to your stomach. What goes through your esophagus? Food and drink. Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that increases in the case of allergy.
People with celiac disease very often have reflux symptoms. A team of researchers recently set out to evaluate mucosal integrity and motility of the lower esophagus as possible contributors to reflux symptoms in patients with celiac disease.
Some studies have indicated higher rates of reflux in patients with celiac disease, but there hasn't really been any clear data on the risk for celiac disease in patients presenting with reflux.
What’s the relationship, if any, between eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) and celiac disease? Research studies have produced variable results.
Celiac disease has been linked to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). Researchers looked at rates of celiac disease in people with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).
