In the September 2013 issue of "Life Extension Magazine" there is a great article on the benefits of WHEY protein for type 2 diabetics. There is evidence that taking whey protein regularly can even prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Whey protein decreases blood sugar without increasing insulin secretion. For non-diabetic individuals taking protein along with oral glucose would NORMALLY decrease the usual rise in blood sugar. Researchers then wondered whether whey protein could still lower blood glucose in humans diagnosed with insulin resistant pre-diabetes or whether, instead, their insulin resistance would blunt the hypoglycemic effect.
They divided the human subjects into three groups according to level of insulin resistance. For eleven mornings, they gave 0, 5 or 30 grams of protein (from whey concentrate) and canola oil to all participants along with oral doses of 50 grams of glucose.
Whey SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS IN ALL THREE CATEGORIES OF INSULIN RESISTANCE, yet the rate of insulin secretion was not affected. They concluded that despite very high levels of insulin resistance in some of the individuals, WHEY WAS ABLE TO DECREASE BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS.
Whey has other benefits including mimicking calorie restricting benefits without starving. It is also thought to add years to your life span.
I believe it is something you should look at.
