WHAT IS COW’S MILK PROTEIN ALLERGY?
CMPA is the most common food allergy in infancy, affecting up to 3% of babies in the first year of life. Food allergies such as CMPA can affect anyone, however infants with a family history of allergy are at higher risk. Nearly half of the children affected by CMPA grow out of it by 1 year of age, and two-thirds by 2 years of age. While the initial stages can be a very challenging time for you as a parent, it can be effectively managed with the support from your healthcare professional.
CMPA occurs when a baby’s immune system reacts negatively to the proteins in cow’s milk. They may experience Skin, respiratory and/or gastrointestinal symptoms as a result. Althéra® HMO effectively relieves infants from the symptoms of CMPA and supports healthy growth and development.
