Answer

Data from a national administrative database (2009-2011) revealed standardized estimated prevalence rates of 6.3 per 100,000 population for eosinophilic gastritis and 3.3 per 100,000 population for eosinophilic colitis; women were affected more often. [3]

Gastritis affects all age groups. The incidence of H pylori infection increases with age.
