PurAmino DHA & ARA by Enfamil
PurAmino is a 20 Cal/fl oz, iron-fortified, hypoallergenic, amino acid-based infant formula for the dietary management of infants with severe cow's milk protein allergy, not effectively managed by an extensively hydrolyzed formula. PurAmino is also indicated for the dietary management of infants with multiple food protein allergies. It may also be suitable for conditions requiring an elemental diet such as protein maldigestion, malabsorption, short bowel syndrome and eosinophilic esophagitis.
Long-Term Usage: PurAmino is designed to provide a sole source of nutrition for infants up to age 6 months and provide a major source of nutrition through 24 months of age, when indicated. Normally, in feeding infants, gradual introduction of solid foods after 4-6 months of age is an important developmental as well as nutritional step. In cases of severe and multiple food allergies or intolerances, PurAmino is sometimes continued as a milk substitute in the diet of children. This and similar supplemental use of PurAmino in the diet beyond 24 months of age may make a significant contribution to maintenance of good nutrition in such patients.
When PurAmino is used as a milk substitute, the total calcium content of the diet should be assessed.
Extended use of PurAmino (or other infant formulas) as a sole source of diet is most appropriately monitored by physicians and nutritionists on a case-by-case basis.
