Is Milk Good or Bad For Diabetes

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.
Let me know if you have any other diabetes related questions.
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'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.
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.
F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
