Nestlé Health Science: Supporting cow’s milk protein allergy diagnosis and management
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
Inconsolable crying, colic, skin rashes, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation are all common signs and symptoms of CMPA, especially in early infancy.
Leading experts have developed the Cow’s Milk-related Symptom Score (CoMiSS®) to help healthcare professionals recognize and assess non-specific signs and symptoms that could be indicative of CMPA.
CLARIFY THE DIAGNOSIS
Diagnosis of CMPA can be challenging, and few tests are available to help assess the presence of CMPA. The gold standard for diagnosing CMPA is the elimination diet, which is free from cow’s milk protein, followed by a food challenge.
