Why is Milk Not Good for Diabetes ?

 While milk does contain calcium. It is of low bioavailability, that is, the human body is unable to synthesize it and extract the calcium in any meaningful quantity.

Not only is milk unable to deliver calcium; it actually leaches calcium from the bones to aid in the digestion of milk.

Calcium is vital for your body—healthy teeth, strong bones depend on calcium for growth. But milk is not the only source. In fact, it’s not close to being the best one.

There are many non-dairy calcium sources that are richer in calcium and are higher in bio-availability too.

Plant-based foods like collards, bok choy, baked beans, leafy green vegetables, soy-milk, tofu…are all high in calcium. Plus they also contain a wealth of minerals, vitamins, and micronutrients.

But by far the biggest risk factor from milk is that it promotes insulin insensitivity.

And that makes it dangerous for people with diabetes, pre-diabetes, family history of diabetes, as well as those suffering from insulin-related disorders like cholesterol, BP, PCOD/PCOS, etc.
