Ever since I started dorming, I have a lot of middle-of-the-night-lows anxiety. I sometimes don't go to bed for an hour of when I am ready to sleep just b/c of my blood sugars. I have just gotten on the CGM, which is great, but due to a little skin irritation, I don't wear it all the time. I have been drinking about 1/2 to 3/4 cups of milk every night to prevent middle of the night lows and so far it seems like it's going pretty well (bg is around 120-150).
I have recently started drinking milk (after a period of drinking no milk) and I honestly don't mind it from time to time, especially seeing that it keeps my bgs where I want it to be, I am fine. However, I heard a lot of conflicting things from milk in the non-diabetic health spectra (including somebody suggesting to me it is like near toxic...). I am a health-sciences major, so I do take caution in these claims, but for the sake of finding a healthier option for digestive purposes, I was wondering if anybody here tries or has tried goat's milk and if it has the same effect on blood sugar as cow's milk. I heard goat's milk has less lactose, so that is the only concern for me as it is the only reason I do consume milk in the first place.
Any and all input is appreciated. Thanks.
