Thre are alternatives if your child has cow's milk protein allergy

THE incidence of cow's milk protein allergy (CM PA) is estimated to be from 1.8% to 7.5%, with the wide range reflecting differences in diagnostic criteria and respective study designs.

The symptoms of CMPA include:

Cutaneous: Atopic dermatitis, urticaria

Gastrointestinal: Diarrhoea, vomiting, colic, nausea

Respiratory: Wheezing, coughing, sneezing, rhinitis

Treatment of the condition:

Complete elimination of cow's milk in the diet

Soy-based formula is the preferred choice for CMPA

Free of cow's milk protein

Nutritionally complete with essential vitamins and minerals

Clinically tested and expert recommended.

If CMPA is confirmed for formula-fed infants, parents should ensure the use of hypoallergenic (extensively hydrolysed protein or if allergic symptoms persist, a free amino acid-based formula) or soy-based formula.

Benefit should be seen within two to four weeks and the formulas continued until age one year.

The American Academy of Paediatrics believes that a trial of soy-based formula in infants with CMPA is warranted if concur- rent soy allergy is ruled out.

Partially hydrolysed formulas (PHF) in CMPA should be avoided as they have 1,000-100,000 times higher concentrations of intact cow's milk proteins than extensively hydrolysed proteins. It provokes significant reactions in a high percentage of infants that are allergic to cow's milk.
