  2. If you have the time after things calm down, I’d like to talk. In 1976 I was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Granuloma, which I have been fighting my entire life. I’ve seen it go through name changes, they now classify it as “Histiocytosis”. It seems to involve the same white cell working against your body, from what I read. We have an association if you go to Histio.org they may have info that could be useful if its related. We have a Dr McClain, he is amazing for pediatric patients. If you have any questions, please email me. I will keep you all in my prayers. Tanya

    • Brian was diagnosed with EoE shortly before his second birthday. We began noticing allergies when we first introduced foods at six months, and the milk allergy was hindsight, because we realized he was not developing properly. When we switched to Elecare at ten months, his development took off. The only reason we were able to consider this diagnosis was because he has an amazing speech therapist who pushed for me to request an endoscopy and colonoscopy. Thank you for your support.
