There are different types of eosinophilia, as it can occur anywhere in the body. Hypereosinophilia Syndrome is a disorder of the blood, however, eosinophils can be found in any tissue in the body.
One set of conditions becoming more and more prevalent are EGIDs - Eosinophilic Gastro-Intestinal Diseases.
Parts of the digestive tract are known to have a low number of eosinophils all the time. The esophagus should not have any. If eosinophils are found in the esophagus or in high numbers elsewhere in the GI tract, you may have an EGID. Symptoms are very similar to crohn's, UC, and IBS, and can often be diminished with adherence to diet.
Since eosinophils are associated with allergic reactions, food can play a huge part in symptoms. So can other allergies. Many people with eosinophilic esophagitis find their symptoms flare at times of the year there is a lot of pollen and their respiratory allergies are flaring.
Unfortunately, because although eosinophils are associated with allergic reactions, they are not the only part of such reactions, and allergy testing will not necessarily show you the triggers of your symptoms.
I personally have EGID throughout my digestive tract, and doctors suspect I may cardiac eosinophilia (or had in the past) leading to my enlarged heart and congestive heart failure.
Unfortunately, these conditions are not understood well at all, and many physicians, including immunologists, are not familiar with them. It is hard to find a specialist, but it can be done. Major universities are your best options for finding doctors familiar with eosinophilic disorders and their treatment.

Anon - Levocet is a nonsedative antihistamine, used to treat allergies, primarily hayfever.

Eosinophilla is a blood disorder. It is not treated by home remedies or diet. We are not able to provide you with medical advice and you need to see a doctor. Good luck to you.

Anon- Are you receiving medical care? Eosinophilla is not treated by changing your diet and requires medical attention.

Hi Anonymous,
Eocinophilia is a detected by blood tests which shows a higher than normal eocinophils in your blood.

According to the Mayo Clinic, the causes of Eocinophilia is the following:

Eosinophilia occurs when either a large number of eosinophils are recruited to a specific site in your body or bone marrow produces too many eosinophils. This can be caused by a variety of conditions, diseases and factors, including:
Parasitic and fungal diseases
Allergies, including to medications or food
Adrenal conditions
Skin disorders
Autoimmune diseases
Endocrine disorders
Specific diseases and conditions that can result in blood or tissue eosinophilia include:
Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
Chronic myelogenous leukemia
Churg-Strauss syndrome
Crohn's disease
Drug allergy
Eosinophilic leukemia
Hay fever
Hodgkin's lymphoma (Hodgkin's disease)
Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES), an extremely high eosinophil count of unknown origin
Lymphatic filariasis (a parasitic infection)
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
Other cancers
Other parasitic infections
Ovarian cancer
Primary immunodeficiency
Scarlet fever
Trichinosis (a roundworm infection)
Ulcerative colitis
Parasitic diseases and allergic reactions to medication are among the more common causes of eosinophilia. Hypereosinophilic syndrome tends to have an unknown cause or results from certain types of cancer, such as bone marrow or lymph node cancer.

Please click here for more information about the disease http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/eosinophilia/MY00399/DSECTION=when-to-see-a-doctor.

Have you been diagnosed with any of the above conditions? Usually the condition is secondary to a primary disease. Thanks for the additional information.

Sincerely, Missie
