Whole, 2%, 1%, and skim milk all share the same ratings. Lactose-free versions of those milks also share the same ratings.
Lactose-free milk is appropriate for those who have milk as neutral or better (mostly Bs) yet have GI trouble from the lactose in unfermented milk. It's not appropriate for anybody who shouldn't be having milk at all.
That said, if you're weaning onto this diet slowly, you may want to make other changes first and continue drinking milk for another few weeks. The lactose-free milk is no more harmful than full-lactose milk.
Since you're a type A, soymilk is probably a good option. Read labels carefully- many commercial soy milks contain "avoid" ingredients such as sugar and/or carrageenan. I've seen shelf-stable milks that contain only "organic soybeans and water." That's the kind you want. If it's not organic, it's probably GMO (genetically modified organisms) and is unhealthy for everybody.
The same brands that make the "pure" soymilks also make fancier flavors with unwanted additives, and the packages may look similar.
Another option is to make your own soy, rice, or almond milk. A third option is to do without any kind of "milk" at all.
