Boiled eggs and oats are typically considered the healthiest choice for breakfast. That is why it may surprise you to know that they can lead to hyperglycemia. While oats and boiled eggs have a low glycemic index, factors like overeating, the type of oats, the portion of oats, etc., can cause hyperglycemia in people with diabetes.

Stabilising blood sugar levels while eating boiled eggs and oats
• Consider increasing the number of eggs in your meal of boiled eggs and oats. The extra protein will keep you fuller longer and optimise glucose levels.
• Try adding some nuts or other sources of fats and fibers to the oats. This will balance the meal and increase its glycemic load.
• Consider portion control while eating oats. Eat no more than 30 grams of oats per day. Use steel-cut or rolled oats for better sugar control.

Oats are known for their innumerable benefits for people with diabetes. However, boiling or cooking can reduce it to simple sugars. The oats lose some of their fibre content. The sugars are then rapidly digested by the body, eventually leading to a spike in sugar levels. Eggs are a rich source of protein. Adding them to the meal may slow down the absorption of carbs in the body. Increasing the portion of boiled egg and reducing the portion of oats will help to level out the glucose load.
