Eosinophilic Esophagitis in Food Intolerance & Leaky Gut Posted October 21, 2013 · Report to Admin Posting a follow-up on this. I haven't been on the site for a while. I recently went dairy free (in addition to gluten free for celiac) and had an almost immediate positive response in my EoE symptoms. My doctor gave me a recent study on EoE and the two leading allergens by far were identified as wheat and dairy. I'd been suspicious of other allegens (rice) but don't think I was on the right track as my approach was not a deliberate elimination diet. It was probably more correlation than causation as the butter/cheese were probably the real problems when I had rice. I also initially consumed a lot of dairy products when I initially went gluten free which could explain my sudden increase in EoE issues. For now, I'll be staying dairy free and gluten free until early december when I get scoped. For those looking for tips on EoE, I'd suggest starting with eliminating wheat and dairy first. Of course, you can have multiple allergens but these two categories seem to account for a large majority of the cases.
