Coping with Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Living with Eosinophilic Esophagitis

Coping with restricted diets can be difficult for anyone—especially a child. If your child seems to be having trouble dealing with the treatment of Eosinophilic Esophagitis, you can be a great source of comfort and help.

  • Keep the lines of communication open, and be sure to let your child know:
  • It’s normal to feel sad or anxious
  • Following the new diet will help you lead a normal, healthy life
  • It’s important to talk about your feelings with a parent or a doctor
  • Anything you share with a doctor is confidential and private—he or she can’t tell anyone else without your permission
  • Kids are different for all kinds of reasons—you’re great the way you are!
