The objective of this perspective article was to discuss if consuming full-fat dairy products may help prevent diabetes and metabolic complexities. Diabetes and related metabolic issues are dependent on lifestyle, especially dietary regimens. Conventionally, consuming low-fat or fat-free dairy products has been encouraged in an effort to decrease diabetes and metabolic issues risks. This indication stems mainly from the fact that full-fat dairy products are rich in saturated fatty acids that may lead to cardiometabolic issues. Nevertheless, recent evidence indicates that full-fat dairy products have neutral or likely advantageous effects on cardiometabolic health and diabetes preclusion. Dairy products such as yogurt and cheese are considered bio-functional foods that contain a variety of nutrients (e.g., vitamins, minerals, probiotics, anti-inflammatory, and bioactive molecules) that work together towards improved metabolic health. To conclude, consuming full-fat dairy products to help prevent diabetes and cardiometabolic issues would be a valid area to be further examined in many aspects. This further evaluation is expected to greatly contribute to improving public opinions on health and welfare in today’s stressful life.
