CDHF Talks: Cow’s Milk Allergy

Étiquettes : ,

#CDHFTalks: Cow’s Milk Allergy. In this CDHF Talks, we talk about one of the most common food allergies in infancy and early childhood – Cow’s Milk Allergy (or CMA for short). If you didn’t know, Cow’s Milk Allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction to bovine protein, a milk protein commonly found in dairy products. Often confused with lactose intolerance, CMA is actually very different and unrelated. CMA is a reaction to the PROTEIN in milk, while lactose intolerance reacts to the SUGAR (lactose) in milk. 

Dr. Lara Hart, pediatric gastroenterologist goes over the causes of CMA, symptoms, tests to diagnose and answer some frequently asked questions in this very informative video.
