Allergies and intolerances

Allergies to dairy products are often confused with intolerance to milk. It should be noted that milk intolerance - a phenomenon very common and to some extent caused physiologically. Nature was intended that young mammals must be fed only breast milk until the tooth, and then gradually move to solid foods. Man develops under the same laws: the older the child, the less his need for milk. Gradually, the mother's milk in the diet is replaced by the child adapted milk formula Dairy mixture - selection of useful power  Dairy mixture - selection of useful power
 And later - the milk of domestic animals, usually cows. Thus the years, many people lose their ability to digest cow's milk, especially milk sugar, as follows, and there is intolerance to milk. According to some reports, lactose intolerance suffer almost seventy percent of adults in the world. Interestingly, in the countries of Central and Northern Europe, where dairy products are traditionally served as food for children and adults, milk intolerance is much rarer than in America or in Africa.

Intolerance to dairy products in adults is expressed in a variety of dyspepsia, which are rarely severe. The solution is obvious: the rejection of milk or milk products the transition to low-lactose. The need for protein, calcium and vitamins contained in milk, it is possible to meet the expense of dairy products.

Much more difficult situation where lactase deficiency (lack of an enzyme called to break down milk sugar) affects children first year of life, for which the milk - a staple food. If a baby breast-fed, he appointed special preparations of lactase (enzyme), which are mixed with expressed breast milk, and breaks down milk sugar (lactose), while retaining all the properties of breast milk. Babies who are bottle-fed, appoint a special Low-milk mixture. Simultaneously, the treatment of intestinal dysbiosis Intestinal dysbiosis - how dangerous it is?

 Which is effective in secondary lactase deficiency. Primary lactase deficiency persists for life.

Quite a different picture if you are allergic to milk. Allergic reactions occur, usually in the protein contained in milk - casein. Symptoms of such allergies can be a pain in the stomach, diarrhea, urticaria, and other skin reactions, breathing difficulties. Often allergy occurs only on one type of milk, more often - in the cow. In this case, a person can use other kinds of milk, such as goat or sheep without any unpleasant consequences for health.
