Dr. Koletzko S and the research team in the study of Diagnostic approach and management of cow's milk protein allergy in infants and children: A practical guideline of the GI-committee of ESPGHAN, posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, indicated that in breast-fed infants, the mother should start a strict CMP-free diet. Non-breast fed infants
with confirmed CMPA should receive an extensively hydrolyzed protein
based formula with proven efficacy in appropriate clinical trials; amino
acids based formulae are reserved for certain situations. Soy
protein formula, if tolerated, is an option beyond 6 months of age.
Nutritional counseling and regular monitoring of growth is mandatory in
all age groups requiring CMP exclusion. RE-. Patients should be re-evaluated every 6-12 months to assess whether they
have developed tolerance to CMP. This is achieved in >75% by three
years and >90% by six years of age. Inappropriate or overly long
dietary eliminations should be avoided. Such restrictions may impair the
quality of life of both child and family, induce improper growth, and
also incur unnecessary healthcare costs.
