Eosinophillic Gastrointestinal Disorders

Eosinophillic oesophagitis (EoE) or eosinophillic gastrointestinal disorder (EGID) are distinct from gastro-oesophageal reflux, but may co-exist or may mimic GOR.  There may, however, be no symptoms of GOR at all.

Because some of Gastric Reflux Support Network NZ’s members have children with EGID, we provide support for this also and have a Private Facebook Group for the “Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders GRSNNZ Support Network”.  To join you need to have completed a Gastric Reflux Support Network NZ for Parents of Infants & Children Charitable Trust Membership & Confidentiality Agreement Form.  If you are already a member of GRSNNZ and want to join, please use the contact form.  All our Support Network groups are private and available to GRSNNZ members only.

More information and links will be added to this page as it becomes available.  If you have something that you think our New Zealand members will find helpful, please let us know by using the contact form.  Remember that investigations and treatment available in other countries, may not be relevant in New Zealand.

The information provided on Crying Over Spilt Milk is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing physician. Please do not change your child’s medical treatment without first consulting their health professionals.
