Does milk contain all the macronutrients necessary in the human diet?

Yes, for a normal human. What milk does not have, the body can make from what milk has. There are eight essential saccarides:

Glucose

Galactose

Mannose

Xylose

Fucose (NOT fructose)

N-acetylgalactosamine

N-acetylglucosamine

N-acetylneuraminic acid

Milk has five of these. The other three, in a normal functioning human, can be made by the body.
