Dietotherapy

The mainstay of treatment of food Allergy is to exclude from the diet allergen that causes adverse reactions patient. It is quite clear that this first required to identify the allergen or allergens, and then to try to exclude them.

Milk-free diet

Once the diagnosis of allergies to milk, it is necessary to provide a diet that contains the minimum possible quantity of cow's milk. At the first stage it is recommended to completely eliminate it, and all the products in which it is included. In the future, after carefully conducted samples from milk, you may find that your symptoms develop only after administration of certain types of milk or its critical quantities. Note that the consumption of other forms of milk, such as boiled milk, or small amounts of this product with long intervals of time may be completely harmless to the patient.
In the first months of a child's life is to achieve zero milk from the diet is quite simple. During the first 6 months of the child is transferred to the feeding of any substitute for milk, which remains the only food at this age. A firm that does not contain milk foods introduced to the diet gradually, according to the program prepared jointly by the parents and the doctor. Up to 6 months of age is not recommended to feed the child eggs, which are the most common food allergens, as well as those products, which are allergic members of the family. A new product is introduced into the period when the child has no symptoms or symptoms of allergies; new food products should be added to the diet gradually with weekly intervals. This method allows you to easily diagnose intolerance of any product.
In older children and adults to completely eliminate cow's milk from the diet is difficult, because it contains many daily consumption products. In such situations, a diet restricted in fruits, vegetables and home-made dishes, prepared from products containing no milk.
A huge number of commercially available products and semi-finished products contain milk; we give most common ones:
butter, buttermilk, cheese, ice cream, milk, malt, dairy cocktails, kefir, curdled milk and other milk products;
most varieties of bread, many kinds of cookies, crackers, cakes and pastries, many kinds of candies, caramel, waffles, rolls;
chocolate and chocolate concentrates, blend, cocoa powder, dry milk, sherbet, nougat, sweet creams;
some cereals (corn flakes, "air" rice and other), macaroni, noodles, puddings;
canned soups (milk or fish with addition of pork, biscuits and vegetables), ready vegetable puree, vegetable side dishes and condiments;
sausages, sausage forcemeat, a number of finished products from minced meat, some kinds of sausages.
In margarine contains only small amounts of cow's milk protein and pure plant oil does not contain milk. In the process of handling and processing of meat products such as sausage, minced meat and other, as a rule, add powdered milk. Before you can use for feeding a child any ready canned product, please read the inscriptions on the label. Management on sanitary inspection behind quality of foodstuff and medicines of the USA requires the manufacturers of food products to indicate on the label of each product are complete list of its components. Unfortunately, this rule is not always comply with, and many labels for marketed products are not thoroughly.
It should be noted that among sensitive to milk persons, fortunately, rarely are such who develop severe reactions in response to the reception insignificant quantities of milk.
Most patients tolerate small quantities of milk without any consequences or with minimal symptoms. Quite back down that complete elimination of milk from the diet, such patients is completely unnecessary and creates unnecessary psychological difficulties. Such a ban for older children or adolescents can bring more harm than the one-time consumption of the guests at a party or on the occasion of the birthday of small quantities containing milk products is that the patient can easily stand. In the treatment of older children, the physician should keep this in mind and exercise tact and understanding.
