Milk Allergy the concept of Allergy to milk in the last few years there has been a lot of confusion. Most often, the claim that the child has an Allergy to milk should be taken as the statement that twice two equals five.
Of course, like any other product, any molecule, any chemical compound, milk Allergy is possible. But it's very, very rare, casuistry, as they say in medicine.
Any Allergy depends not on substance, but on the body. Allergic to something is incorrect, inadequate reaction of the human body. I.e. that "something" is totally not to blame – the problem is some failure in the organism. In the case of milk this is a very very rare situation.
What lies under the approval of an Allergy to milk?
There are many diseases and conditions that have similar symptoms to allergies, but allergies are not. It is important to recognise, because the right treatment depends only on the correct diagnosis.
So, forget the term milk Allergy, as a casuistic case and talk about a much more common diseases and conditions newborn.
It is very important, in this case, to talk about the States. Ie not about diseases.
For example, none of the parents never think to complain that I've made in a month, not able to talk or walk. Everyone understands – yet. But I don't know what everything else, including the digestion of food, promote food through the intestines, the body of child also need to learn.
Handles and legs child stirred in her belly, but the intestinal and enzymatic systems have been completely "fixed" - not worked.
Of course, nature has thought of everything and provided for, but even for the "awakening" of any inherent nature of the skill needs time.
There is a term – lactase deficiency. Its symptoms are very similar to symptoms of an Allergy to milk, but it's not an Allergy. In addition, the term lactase deficiency is hiding and a disease that should be treated and the condition, which does not need treatment is transient lactase deficiency. This state spontaneously, as children get older, increasing the production of enzymes, ie, symptoms of "illness" will disappear after some time simply because the child grows up and his organs and system "learns" to produce an adequate amount of enzymes.
The term dysbiosis is also a condition where the symptoms can be similar to the "allergic". And in this situation as well – sometimes need correction – the administration of probiotics and other drugs, and sometimes is absolutely not necessary.
There is a "failure to adapt" is the state when violations of diet or lactating women because of the misuse of fishing lures, a child is "toiling". Like in the gym, lifting excessive weight. However, in this case "toil" pancreas, intestines, but the essence remains the same – it's not an Allergy and treat this condition.
There is an intolerance of certain proteins, e.g. a protein of cow's milk. But it is a fairly rare disease. For example, in Sweden it's only 1% of infants.
Even according to experts of the company Humana, the firm that develops the formula for artificial feeding, with an intolerance or Allergy to cow's milk protein is found only in 2% of cases. And that 2% of all newborns, and 2% infants with diarrhea, rashes, and other symptoms similar to the symptoms of Allergy or intolerance.
It is important to remember that a breastfeeding woman has no relation to cows. Human milk proteins and cow milk proteins are not similar. So to talk about the cow milk protein intolerance, if the child is breastfed, does not make sense.
And mother's milk the child the vast majority of cases "takes". So nature intended.
Sometimes, when artificial feeding, children are diagnosed with an intolerance (or Allergy) to cow milk protein and is transferred to the soy mixture. This may be a mistake, because such a diagnosis is done much more often than in 2% of cases, and because often children do not tolerate cow's proteins are not transferred and as well soy proteins.
Sometimes children diagnosed with intolerances or allergies to translate "hydrolysates" - a mixture where proteins are digested into small fragments. This can help the child to digest the mixture, to put on weight. But if the diagnosis is not correct, then the power of the hydrolysates to inhibit the development of enzymatic systems of the child.
All this must be remembered, having heard in the address of your child phrase "Allergy to milk". And before you rush to treat a non-existent Allergy, frantically to change the mixture, to swallow the medication, think about – and consider whether any of the symptoms of "Allergy" is much more commonly occurring conditions and diseases. To find the true cause of complaints and to act on it.
