Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis – An Overview

Signs and Symptoms of Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis

The signs of eosinophilic gastroenteritis may be nonspecific and relatively similar to those of other digestive conditions. Common symptoms include heartburn, abdominal fluids, trouble swallowing, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, nausea, abdominal pain, and vomiting. Based on these signs, your doctor may need a physical exam and other tests to diagnose the disease. In rare cases, eosinophilic gastroenteritis may spread and affect other parts. This leads to rare signs, such as weight loss, rectal bleeding, edema, atopic dermatitis, and chest pain. Make sure to inform your doctor immediately as soon as you notice these problems. [2]
