[IP] How many carbs in an egg?


My materials indicate that there is 1 g of CHO in an average chicken egg.
This makes sense as eggs are almost 100% protien.  HOWEVER:  HIstorically I
need to bolus for eggs as if they had 15 g CHO per egg.  No special perep
in cooking - just fried w/o oil.  None of my carb tables list teh g of
protein in an egg.  Based on the required amt of insulin I need per egg; it
must be about 28 g of protien per egg.

Any thoughts on this one?
