Yes, my daughter was diagnosed when she was 6. That added to her probable Celiac diagnoses when she was 17 months old. She is now 10 too!

There are EoE peeps here on the forum. Some are here because gluten is one of their triggers. There is a known connection between EoE and Celiac. (JAMA Nov. 2011)

I don't want to burst your bubble, but allergy testing is not reliable to identify all "triggers" for EoE. An elimination diet is often a first line of defense to find "triggers". Like allergies the reaction is mainly caused by proteins. There are amino acid based formulas that can be helpful for nutritional supplements.

Please remember, I will always give advice on the experience from my daughter's case and the limited research available.

Oh my goodness, I just came on here to post something about this very thing. I have just been diagnosed with EE on friday. I was reading this study that is on this site about how it is more common among celiacs to have EE than the general population. The plot thickens. Anyone any good at data analysis?

Standardized incidence ratio was 35.6 (95% CI, 9.3-79.0) for children, and 13.1 (95% CI, 6.2-22.5) for adults. Overall, age-adjusted and sex-adjusted standardized incidence ratio was 16.0 (95% CI, 8.7-25.5).

The above is what the study found, any idea what it means?? Does that mean 35.6% of celiac children and 13.1% in adults? Or am I getting it all wrong?

There is so clearly a connection between everything I have, it is starting to get me down though. Just another thing to add to the list!

I thought that article was written in a "goobly-gook" manner. I now that adult cases and child cases are diagnosed on a different count of eosinophils.

It seems the standard care for a child at diagnoses...

Prevacid

modified Flovent inhaler(so the liquid is swallowed not inhaled)

allergy testing

an elimination diet (eliminate all top 8 allergens and peas)to identify "triggers"

complications are dealt with as they develop. pain~ sometimes rest and slurpees work wonders, constipation is a daily battle, headaches, bad breath and scratchy throat.

My daughter has not needed surgical dilation or a feeding tube.

All of her known triggers are kept out of the house. We have noticed there is a seasonal airborne connection/flare.

Add my 12 year old to the EE list. She has no symptoms if it. No swallowing issues or food getting stuck. They found it on accident on the way down to take the celiac biopsy. We have eliminated everything that was positive in the skin test and her patch test showed nothing. After eliminating all beans peas apples pork mustard gluten cantaloupe and bananas, she still scoped with EE. The "by the book" doctors will tell you to eliminate and rescope every 3 months but that's thousands of dollars for us and she has no symptoms we have scoped twice and the gi doc thinks it may be the fall allergies that made it bad this time. It may not even be food. She did not want me to do the elimination diet until she had symptoms. So that's where we are now. We avoid what showed up but will not keep scoping or eliminating more foods until she has a symptom.

I agree with 1974 girl. You have to draw the line on how much scoping you are going to do.

My daughter was scoped during the elimination diet. (everything was clear and normal) That's when we started challenging possible allergens and based on her reactions identified her triggers. She was scoped again when she had seasonal airborne issues. (it showed active damage, no where near her initial diagnoses damaged state. She was very close to being put on a feeding tube when she was first diagnosed)

    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal.
