I'm really sorry to hear your son is struggling - I can only imagine how tough it is on an 11 year old and his family!
I have a couple of comments:
1. Apriso is a medication for ulcerative colitis, not Crohn's. The fact that he was prescribed Apriso makes me question the doctor's experience with Crohn's.
2. Eosinophils found in biopsies throughout the digestive tract are not a typical finding in Crohn's disease. Were they found in the biopsies from his colon? Any other findings in the biopsies from his colon? Any gross/macroscopic finding from his colonoscopy, such as visible inflammation and/or ulceration? Or were the eosinophils primarily found in his stomach and duodenum?
3. So many eosinophils does warrant allergy testing. Unfortunately allergy testing isn't totally reliable. Did they do skin prick testing or blood tests or both? Did they do a large panel of foods? Have you tried any elimination diets?
4. Surely they've done basic blood tests. Were his eosinophil counts high? If so, how high?
I don't have nearly enough info to warrant a guess, but I will anyway. To me, this sounds a bit like eosinophilic gastroenteritis.
