Difficulties can manifest as regurgitation, colic, constipation or behavioural changes. The causes are often unclear, however physiological immaturity or an inability to break down certain components in milk may be responsible.
This webinar focuses on the following topics –colic, reflux, lactose intolerance, cows’ milk protein allergy and where relevant, the NICE clinical guidelines. The webinar will discuss possible causes and management techniques, that can help you to provide reassurance for parents.
Evidence suggest that it can take an average of 10 weeks and 4 visits to a healthcare professional to get a diagnosis of cows' milk allergy (CMA).1
Our speaker will discuss how to identify the common signs and symptoms of cows' milk allergy and which pathways and tools can be used to aid diagnosis. You will understand how to manage cows' milk allergy in the community.
