I have been struggling to breastfeed, and recently went to see a lactation consultant and doctor at the local Children’s Hospital breastfeeding clinic. They told me that I have several “risk factors” for low supply: PCOS, T2 Diabetes, Overweight — these all have something in common: insulin.
So, I’m trying to find out more info online, but I’m not finding a lot of legitimate research. Does anybody know about how D relates to milk production? I’ve seen some older threads on TuD with people asking a similar question.
It does seem related, insofar as my bg goes. I’ve been breastfeeding and pumping a lot, and my bg has been really excellently in range, despite the fact that I have not been eating particularly low carb (first time mom - it’s a miracle if I remember to eat at all! I am hoping to get back into a routine, but that’s a story for another day). So it would seem that there is some interplay.
