Default Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis

Hi, I have a new problem again.
It seems we have another dog with autoimmune disease.
So Jago, our gsd tervueren mix started vomiting few weeks ago. Half an hour after eating he vomited everything. We went to vet, exams, stomach flip etc, they said he has is an inflammatory bowel and stomach, maybe genetic, maybe caused by worms from his old life (he is adopted more then a year ago), but it seems like an autoimmune sourced disorder. We are so scared, we had our Duncan, died three years ago, he had autoimmune disease, he had different symptoms, but the autoimmune disease is not joke, it is not a secret of a long life.
Our vet said, the treatment is a diet, he get some gastro-potective medicine and pills "Losec" maybe it's different in Your contry, it's given to the pancreatic cancer. He said, we have to wait three months, and if it's not better we have to start a Prednisone threatment. I'm scared of Predniosone!!! Prednisone threatment killed my Betty in her Young ages, and Prednisone threatment made my Duncan's life shorter.
It's not fair, we have to see them all die!!!
Have You ever heared this Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis?
Do You know this disease? What is the threatment in Your country? Here the only way is the steroide-care, we all know this is the way to ****.
Please help if You can, we need advice what to do.

Sorry for any mispelling but I'm shocked and nervous
