  1. Values are means ± standard deviation. LD = low dairy; RD = recommended dairy. There were no significant differences in the baseline to 3 months changes between groups. *Significant change from 3 to 9 months within treatment group (p < 0.05). There were no significant differences in change from 3 to 9 months between treatment group.
