Has anyone tried Goat's Milk? Noticed any BG changes compared to cow's milk?

I love milk. When I was diagnosed as Type 2, I quickly learned that drinking 2 glasses of regular 2% milk with my dinner was going to be a problem. In order to drink milk, the rest of my meal would almost have to be carb-less. BUT, then I found a "work-around", diabetescommunity.dlife.com/go/thread/vi...
If you can find it in your local grocery store, look for "Calorie Countdown Low-carb milk" (aka Hood's Milk). Comes in 2%, non-fat and chocolate milk. All are ~3g carbs per glass! Otherwise, use the recipe from the link above and make your own low-carb milk. I use half and half, diluted 1:3 with water. Then a dash of salt and the appropriate packets of Equal. Chill in the fridge overnight. Only 3g carbs per glass and tastes just like 2% milk!

Milk is a problem for me for exactly the reasons you mention.
The best way to find out if it is a problem for you is to test it. You can use this technique to test all your foods: Test, Review, Adjust
I obtain adequate calcium by including yoghurt and cheese on my menu; it is also surprising how much calcium is available in vegetables like spinach, rhubarb and other greens.
