Eosinophilic esophagitis is characterized by dense mucosal eosinophilia with symptoms of esophageal dysfunction. Because the incidence and prevalence are increasing, understanding the available treatments is imperative. This article highlights evolution and advancements in dietary treatment, supports the notion that food antigens drive this disease, and discusses the advantages, limitations, and future of dietary therapy. Medical and dietary therapies are effective treatments and the optimal approach should be individualized based on patient goals and available local resources. Dietary therapy has been effective and further studies will help identify optimal approaches to dietary therapy.
