Since 2011, ausEE Inc. has been hosting National EOS Awareness Week to raise awareness for eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs). This year #NEOSW2020 is being held 2-8 August 2020.
During NEOSW on Saturday 8 August, ausEE challenges people to take their Top 8 Challenge. For one meal or for the whole day on the 8/8 to not eat any one of, up to all of the top 8 common allergenic foods and don8 to make a difference to those living with EGIDs. There is no cure for EoE and one of the common treatment options is an elimination diet which can mean removing up to the Top 8 common allergenic foods. This means no milk, eggs, wheat, fish, peanuts, tree nuts, soy or shellfish. ausEE’s Top 8 Challenge is as much about raising awareness for what it can be like to live with an EGID as it is about raising much needed funds for Australian medical research.
