Is Milk Good or Bad For Diabetes Download Diabetes Management Book: http://bit.ly/2g0NDAH Hello, I'm Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com, researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I'm going to answer the question, is milk good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping guide (foods to eat and avoid) and other tips to better manage your blood sugar to avoid complications. I really love milk. To me there is not much better than an ice cold glass of milk and a warm peanut butter cookie for dessert. Now I make my own PB cookies, they are sugar free with no flour so they do not affect my blood sugar a great deal. But I had never really done much research on milk until I was asked this question. So let’s learn together about this beverage so many enjoy. Now first of all, for the purposes of this video, when I say milk, I am talking about good old fashion cow’s milk you buy in the store. I am not talking about goats milk or almond milk or any other kind of product that is associated with milk, not even milk chocolate. Just regular cow’s milk. I was told by several people who know my love for milk, that I shouldn’t drink it because it is not good for diabetes or for weight control. I decided to see if there was any scientific evidence to support their claim. I did not. Instead I found several studies saying just the opposite. A 2008 French study concluded, “Prospective trials have shown an independent negative correlation between dairy food consumption and overweight, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome and ischaemic cardiovascular diseases. Large amounts of calcium can reduce intestinal fat absorption. They can also reduce lipogenesis, through an inhibitory effect on calcium calcitriol-mediated intracellular fluxes. Some soluble aminoacids appear to reduce appetite and may also improve tissular insulin sensitivity, insulin secretion, arterial pressure and cardiovascular morbidity. Milk and dairy foods are recommended for patients with obesity, diabetes, hypertension and metabolic syndrome, and also for patients at risk.” A 2016 study came to basically the same conclusion stating, “Evidence suggests that there is an inverse association between the consumption of milk products and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. High-fat milk products are not associated with type 2 diabetes. In fact, certain dairy fatty acids may have a beneficial role in the prevention of type 2 diabetes. The association between different types of milk products and the risk of diabetes is less clear, but evidence suggests that yogurt and cheese may be protective against type 2 diabetes.” So is milk good for diabetes? Not only is it good for diabetes, it can possibly prevent it. For those of us with diabetes, we cannot prevent something we have, but milk will certainly help you control your weight, blood sugar and essentially control your diabetes. I hope this answered your question is milk good or bad for diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes management book by clicking the link in the description box below.

I realize that each individual is different And reacts differently to different types of food I feel that you’re giving the people wrong advice Best thing to do is to take your fasting blood sugar drink a glass of milk or eat some peanut butter Both of which you have suggested were OK and take your blood sugar an hour later or two hours later mine will go right through the roof so I avoid both like poison One has to know what his body will and will not tolerate because you have to live with the results nobody else information and Being proative is good test your blood sugar to confirm how YOU React

Is whole milk good for Diabetes. I drank skim milk for 30 years because researchers said it was low in fat and cholesterol. Now researchers are saying skim milk is higher in sugar and whole milk is better? Which is it?

I love ice cold milk,, but I keep seeing videos that say to stay away from dairy if you have diabetes 2 it is very confusing

I'm so happy that milk is not a forbidden food, I was recently diagnosed with diabetes and would gladly swap my rice and potatoes with a glass of milk or cheese. I"m not lactose intolerant so that's an added bonus to me.

I heard that dairy is the cause of type 2. I've been pre-diabetic for a couple years now and went vegan a month ago. Excited to see my A1C next time.

is powdered milk good for diabetics?
13Gladius 2 (9 months ago)
The problem with most powdered milk is that it's fat therefore equivalent to skim milk therefore is skim milk diabetic friendly? IDTS (I Don't Think So). Butter Bob Briggs doesn't recommend on his LCHF diet. Dr Darren Schmidt wouldn't recommend it for anything. Powdered whole milk (with the fat in it) is available and that may be the next best thing to liquid whole milk.

I have never researched that one. But I will see what I can find out. We may have a new video in the works!
