    Does milk affect blood sugar levels??

    Lately I have added 2% milk back into my diet and my blood sugar levels have been out of whack.Typical readings use to remain in the 90-180 range;but as of lately;since adding milk; anywhere from 200 to 420 {which is an annoyance due to the extra Insulin shots I have to take.}

    My train of thought was that there would be sufficient enough protein and fat to help the levels to somewhat maintain w/ out rising or was I wrong in thinking that?

    Any help is appreciated.

    While looking around on google I saw where the ADA recommends glucose for hypoglycemia because of the fact that it raises blood sugar levels and holds it at a more constant level as opposed to glucose or orange juice.

    This would lead me to believe that the the milk is causing your high blood sugar levels, and also if the addition of milk is the only change in your diet then it would be a logical assumption that the milk is the cause.

    Also, I think that FF milk has a higher GI than whole milk.

    On the following site www.glycemicindex.com whole milk was ~31 and skim milk was ~32.
