Sometimes known as Milk/Soy Protein Intolerance or milk protein hypersensitivity, Allergic Proctocolitis is a gastrointestinal allergy that causes bloody stools and fussiness in infants. This site was designed to provide information on Allergic Proctocolitis to families, physicians, dietitians, and lactation consultants.
The Allergic Proctocolitis website was developed by a Judith Thalheimer, a Registered Dietitian and Anne Eglash, a family physician specializing in breastfeeding medicine. Funding for the development of this website was provided by a grant from the Medical Nutrition Practice Group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
