Abstract/OtherAbstract:
ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to identify barriers to dietary adherence found in the treatment of children with eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases (EGIDs) and food allergy (FA). A prospective study utilizing a self-administered survey to parents of children with EGIDs at a national advocacy meeting was completed. Responses from 45 participants describing children aged 1-18 years (69% male) identified that 63% were adherent to food restrictions. Physicians provided dietary instructions more often than dietitians. Non-adherence was associated with lack of school support (p < .027). Access to a dietitian may improve care of children with EGIDs.
