I have type 2 diabetes, can I replace a meal each day with a whey protein shake?

Q. I have type 2 diabetes…needless to say,  I am trying to lose weight. I would like to replace a meal each day with the whey protein shakes you recommended, but need to know if being sensitive to lactose would make this a bad choice. Many thanks, MF

Dr. Fred:

Good news! My WheyLogic (and  other whey protein shakes) are safe for people who are lactose intolerant. When you make whey into a protein isolate, you remove the sugar (the lactose). Which means you’re getting a superior  source of protein without added  sugars. It’s a great way to help you lose weight.

So go ahead and try adding a shake into your daily diet. And write back with your success story. I’ll be looking forward to it!
