Can Dairy Help Lower Diabetes Risk?

A new Swedish study suggests that people eating high-fat dairy products are at significantly lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

A new Swedish study suggests that people eating high-fat dairy products are at significantly lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes than those eating less dairy products.


The study was presented at this year’s annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in Vienna, Austria. The results showed that study participants eating eight portions of high-fat dairy a day (including cream and whole milk) had a 23 percent lower incidence of developing diabetes than those who had one or fewer portions per day.


Dr. Daniel Einhorn, medical director of the Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute shared his views on this study with MedPageToday.com.
