You will complete questionnaires and provide a blood and tissue sample prior to your clinically scheduled upper endoscopy procedure. You will be randomized to an individualized diet elimination therapy or a sham(pretend) diet elimination therapy. You will meet with a study dietician to review your assigned diet and then follow the diet elimination therapy for 8 weeks. You will complete weekly questionnaires and check-in with the study team virtually. You will have a visit with the dietician at 4 weeks and 8 weeks (can also be virtual) and return for an end of study upper endoscopy as part of your clinical care at 8 weeks at which time additional questionnaires, blood, and biopsies will be completed for the study.
