I posted this in your other thread to Jasmine's mom, thought I would post it again so you would see it if you didnt check back on that one. GI symptoms such as bloody mucusy diarrhea,stomach pain Anemia, low blood protein, growth failure, peripheral blood eos are all EGID(and EC) symptoms. To dx Eos colitis, the biopsied Eosinophil count should be greater than 10-20 eosinophils per hpf, 0 in infants. Tretment is pretty much the same, though elemental or elimination diet seems to fail more and raise the need for steriods and other medications. I read that unlike EE, Eos Colitis and Eos Gastroenteritis have a chance of being outgrown. EC is highly suspected in my son(he already has been diagnosed with EE) his symptoms are bloody and mucusy bowel movements,chronic diarrhea,stomach pain, failure to thrive..HTH Oh yeah, and it can be an allergy related without being an eosinophilic disorder. I would look into it though

Thanks for the info. I had not checked back and it was getting ready to be off the front and might have missed it otherwise. As far as symptoms we are having the chronic pain and slow to no weight gain as well as the mucousy stools. I'm still waiting on the ped GI to call me back. We will see.
Check with your
doctor first!
