    I thought some others might also find this interesting. I have EoE and my EoE and stomach problems flare from exertion and it's becoming pretty obvious it's playing quite a big role in my disease. I've also suspected that I have severe mitochondrial dysfunction in these organs but unable to prove it definitively.

    interesting that it could be mitochondrial.

    i have many esophagus issues, but don't know what causes them. i have been assuming that one was caused by a gastroscopy biopsy that did not heal [it started right after it], and most are caused by vagus nerve issues. but that could be wrong. are there good blood or urine tests?

    For EoE? No. It's diagnosed via esophageal biopsy collected during endoscopy. I think it's pretty routine to test for EoE now but I could be wrong, maybe they only test if someone is symptomatic.
