Healthy Aging

Balanced nutrition and regular physical activity are important for good health at any age.

Healthy and active aging is closely linked to a lifestyle that includes regular physical activity paired with wise food choices. The right intake of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, fibers and protein are essential for normal body functions, from maintaining muscle to promoting healthy digestion. To have a balanced diet:

  • Choose a variety of nutritious foods
  • Avoid empty calories from foods such as chips, cookies, soda, and alcohol, which are rich in calories but low on nutrients
  • Pick foods that are low in saturated fats, trans fats, and cholesterol from animal sources

Cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) presents with diverse and often non-specific signs and symptoms, resulting in frequent misdiagnosis or a delay in diagnosis. Guidelines and tools are available to support an early diagnosis of CMPA.

 

Leading experts have developed the Cow’s Milk-related Symptom Score (CoMiSS®), which is a fast and easy-to-use tool to help healthcare professionals recognize and assess non-specific signs and symptoms that could be indicative of CMPA as early as possible.
