I have figured out that milk raises by number every single time. Usually instead of getting a 100-110 I end up 125-135. Is it worth it to just have the milk and get the slightly too high number once or twice a day?

The problem is I have been craving it. I also just can't eat peanut butter without having milk. I know I need the protein and honestly I am not a huge meat eater unless it's dinner. I am tired of eggs. I don't eat any fish at all. I am a really picky eater.

Any milk or protein advice ladies? I sure could use some!

No tips, but today my reading was high after having a london fog, with sugar free syrup so I guess it was the milk

Joanne, it's so frustrating. Especially KNOWING I am trying to drink something good for me and it's causing problems. It's not like I am trying to drink pepsi.

I just wonder if it's okay to just go ahead and have it every now and then and just get the higher number?

I was told by a diabetic nurse that it takes milk 30-40 mins to begin to be broke down our systems. I discovered when I had milk that I usually waited a little longer than 2 hours to take my sugar. I justified that in my mind as it takes longer for everything to start breaking down, so I didn't feel the reading was accurate.

Are you drinking WHOLE milk??? If not, the others would raise your numbers.

I have been drinking the 1%. Should I try whole milk? I really don't mind it and we do have it in the fridge at all times for Matthew. Hmmm

Why does whole milk make that much of a difference?
Bobbie, what did you have with it? Was that 1 or 2 hr after?

I had a piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and a glass of whole milk. I wasn't very hungry this morning. But in the past I have done the same toast and peanut butter but with 1% and got a reading in the 120's.

It was a 2hr reading.

Hood Dairy makes low carb milk called Calorie Countdown that is 3g carb per serving. I am a milk junkie and would be in big trouble without it.

I am also wondering the same thing, why does whole milk affect your blood sugar less than lower fat milk? I've never heard this before. In fact, my dietician told me to stay away from full fat dairy and to get low fat versions of dairy instead.

Also, I concur with the previous poster about Hood Calorie Countdown low carb dairy beverage. It only has 3g of carbs. It comes in 1/2 gallon cartons.
