The First Steps to Diagnosing Cow's Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA). The process of diagnosing a child with a Cow's Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA) can be difficult as the symptoms of CMPA are common, making the allergy often difficult to detect.
In this short video, Professor Yvan Vanderplas and Professor Antonella Muraro talk about the first steps along the road to diagnosing infants with this allergy.
The paediatric and allergy experts give insightful answers to 3 questions:
1. What is the path to diagnosis of CMPA?
2. What initiatives would you recover when the symptoms indicate that it could be a cow's milk protein allergy?
3. What other information is helpful?
There are multiple methods to diagnosing a CMPA, including various forms of allergy testing and also the Cow's Milk Related Symptom Score (CoMiSS®), which is a breakthrough in awareness raising of the allergy.
