MIMS publishes supplement on cow's milk allergy

MIMS readers will be receiving a special supplement on the diagnosis and management of cow's milk allergy with the September issue of the prescribing reference.

A special supplement published with the September 2017 issue of MIMS aims to help primary care staff diagnose and manage cow's milk allergy.

Defined as a reproducible immune-mediated adverse reaction to one or more milk proteins, cow's milk allergy is one of the most common childhood allergies, and frequently encountered in primary care.

Following on from the recent publication of the MAP (Milk Allergy in Primary Care) guideline, the MIMS supplement covers:

  • Symptoms and diagnosis: IgE- or non-IgE-mediated?
  • GP management and when to refer to secondary care
  • Summary of the new MAP guidance
  • Case study: a five-month-old baby with suspected cow's milk allergy

The supplement is worth 1 CPD credit towards appraisal and revalidation. Look out for your printed copy when you receive your next issue of MIMS from early September. Alternatively, download a digital version via the button below.
