type 1 is a bit of a science experiment, yeah? there are many strange things we observe in our dealing with it that could cause controversy and other disagreement when compared to the universal averages of everybody.
everything, and I mean everything, except maybe water, breaks down to sugar to be used as fuel for our internal bio engine. so the “it’s only protein” thing is, in my opinion, not correct.
I am only assuming you had eggs for breakfast. in the “normals” it is common for the body to throw out glucose from the liver in the morning to help us wake up. you could have a touch of that extra liver sugar response based on the content of your breakfast. just a thought. look up “dawn effect” (or “phenomena”) and “somogyi” for some interesting reading on your body’s rebounds and reactions.
for me, it is not important what the carb count is on the side of the box. It’s not written in stone that I need a unit for 12 grams of carbs. For some kinds of foods at certain times and in certain combinations, I may need 5 units for the same 12 grams, or I may need one. Whatever it is-it is, and the goal is good blood sugar control. If you need a few units with eggs: well then, give yourself a few units for eggs. good luck and don’t get discouraged! I have taught myself how to eat ice cream and pizza when I want to. cheers!
