10 Dangerous Foods for Diabetes - Whole Milk

If you have type 2 diabetes, steer clear of foods that can spike your blood sugar levels or increase your risk of diabetes complications. These 10 foods are among the worst offenders.
Whole Milk
Saturated fats in dairy products have racked up a laundry list of negative side effects including raising "bad" (LDL) cholesterol and promoting inflammation throughout the body. But for those with diabetes, a diet high in saturated fat can cause another serious problem: Studies have shown that saturated fats can worsen insulin resistance. Keep whole milk out of the fridge, and pick up 1% low-fat or skim milk instead. Also, try your best to avoid whole-milk dairy products like cream, full-fat yogurt, regular cheese and cream cheese; instead, choose their reduced-fat counterparts whenever possible.
