  1. Hi
    In my opinion is not Eosinophilic gastroenteritis , as eosinphils count did not rise as you stated, so next step should be stool culture to check for
    h pylori .
    Good Luck

  2. hi,
    this does not seem to be eosinophilic gastroenteritis.
    It seems more of a irritable bowel syndrome that happens due to over-sensitive gut mucosa.
    pre-pro biotic medicines should be taken for 3 weeks and get the scopy repeated again.
    thanks

  3. It is either of these possibilities..
    H.pylori gastritis,celiac or crohns disease ..I recommend seeing another Dr. And get another GI endoscopy done ..
