Eosinophilia colitis

I was just reading my medical report from my colonoscopy, which of course is very confusing. and i dont see my GI for the follow up for another 4 weeks. i am reading in the report that it says I have eosinophilic colitis. Seems to be very rare. From what I have read it can only be detected by a biopsy under a microscope. So I am wondering if it may be the same as microscopic colitis.
Sorry if this is a dumb question. I've been googling it forever and can't seem to find an answer. Thanks

It is considered an EGID.
Eosinophilic gastrointestinal disease.
EC is sometimes considered eosinophilic gastroenteritis .
Apfed is a good source of info

Eosinophilic disorders are more allergic in nature than crohn's or uc.

You will need to work with a Gi and an allergist .

It is tricky to treat and some of the treatment overlaps with Ibd .

Good luck

One more thing you can have a egid ( EoE , EGE or EC) and have Ibd
But that is very rare.

I have both EGE and lymphocytic colitis. So definitely possible.
