What is allergic gastroenteritis?

Also called eosinophilic gastroenteritis, this is a condition where the intestines react strongly to certain foods or other unknown allergens, causing diarrhea and abdominal discomfort. Common triggers include milk, eggs, seafood, and nuts. Childhood allergies may gradually disappear by adulthood, but allergies can develop at any point in life.

Symptoms of allergic gastroenteritis

  • Nausea or vomiting after eating

  • Family history of Asthma, Eczema, Allergic rhinitis or Allergic conjunctivitis

  • Stomach pain or tummy ache in a specific place

  • Blood in stool

  • Abdominal pain that worsens after meals

  • Exposed to something that you were previously allergic to

  • Abdominal pain

  • Upset tummy / upper abdominal discomfort

Questions your doctor may ask to check for allergic gastroenteritis

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose allergic gastroenteritis

  • Do you feel nauseous or throw up right after eating?

  • Does anyone in your family have a history of asthma, allergies, or hay fever?

  • Is your stomach pain localized to one specific area?

  • Do you have blood in your stool?

  • Does eating make your stomach pain worse?

Treatment for allergic gastroenteritis

The most important step is identifying and removing the allergen or trigger foods. A steroid or other immunosuppressant may be prescribed. Rarely, some patients may require hospital medical care.
