Elimination diet: Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs) are chronic digestive system disorders in which certain food proteins trigger an overproduction of eosinophils (white blood cells that help fight certain infections) in different areas of the digestive tract. Your doctor may be able to identify specific food proteins that trigger the overproduction of eosinophils in your child.
