Can you drink too much milk?


An elderly relative eats less food these days but drinks more milk, around two or three pints a day. Could this cause health problems?

    Good point, but he's not shy about sharing problems or seeing a doctor. He says he enjoys the milk, which I guess is fair enough. Thanks for answering.

    Hmm, he used to drink fat free but I think it's full fat cow's milk now. I worry a bit that it's spoiling his appetite for other food which may reduce vitamin intake. He's 87, and quite frail now. Maybe the milk keeps him going.
