ALLERGY TO MILK IN CHILDREN AND BABIES


If you live in Ipswich or Colchester you could come for a consultation.

Causes of Allergies

Allergy/intolerance to milk, lactose, gluten can be tested for adults, children, babies.
The baby’s digestive and immune systems are not mature. The intestines lack enzymes that break down cow’s milk proteins. They enter the bloodstream unchanged. The body recognizes them as malicious and produces specific antibodies to combat the “enemy” – an immune response arises. There are about 36 antigens in cow’s milk. Most often, caseins and milk whey proteins (alpha, beta-lacto globulin, bovine serum albumin, immunoglobulin) cause a pathological reaction.
