Hard boiled or fried? If fried, the butter or oil or spray you use in the pan may the culprit.

All eggs, and I'm talking they spike my sugar to about 300-400

How long after you eat are you testing

2 hours, I'll drink water with eggs (no carbs) and 2 hours later it will be 300 it baffles me

Hmm there are fats in eggs I'm wondering if the trans fat might be affecting your blood sugar in someway!

Eggs shouldn't affect your sugars no matter which way you cook them

Allergic reaction? It can cause your body to do all kinds of crazy stuff! I only react to cooked plain eggs, not if they are in breads or mixes, and my sugar goes high( from hormones) and I sweat at my hairline. Weird stuff. And egg is a common allergy

My daughter is the same with eggs. They actually have 0.75g carb per egg and high fat, so they can and do delay carb absorption via the fat spike. My daughter uses a combo (dual) bolus covering her eggs and a Orin of the carbs she eats with them in a square.
