In a recent research study published by Hao et. all, entitled Clinical Effect of Standardized Dietary Avoidance Therapy on Children with Milk Protein Allergy and Its Effect on Intestinal Flora, researchers analyzed the effect of standardized dietary avoidance therapy on children with cow milk protein allergy (CMPA). The study group received the dietary therapy while the routine group received routine treatment. The results showed that the study group had a lower incidence of related symptoms and a faster complete remission of symptoms than the routine group. The study group also had higher levels of Lactobacillus and Enterococcus and lower levels of yeast-like fungi in their intestinal flora compared to the routine group. The study group also had higher values of height, weight, and head circumference compared to the routine group. The conclusion is that standardized dietary avoidance therapy is effective in treating CMPA and promoting the growth and development of children. It is consistently our aim at MyHealthcareKit to bring you the best evidence based literature so you can make informed decision about your care.
