I guess it all depends on how you feel and the type of control that you continue to have. If he is comfortable with a higher level and you don't feel any worse, I guess it could work. Try to see how you feel better, with the higher or lower levels and go from there.
what I do, is I try to eat a snack between meals or whenever I'm starting to go low. So try eating a snack whenever you are starting to go low, or if you don't notice when you are going low, try to monitor your bg levels more closely, and eat some sort of a snack a couple of hours after eating. Maybe try not going over 2 or 3 hours without eating a snack or something. It doesn't have to be much, try like half a fruit or a sugar free pudding which is only 11 g of carb. See if that helps. Let me know if that helps.
You're kidding me right? When my Doctor told me that my A1c was 5.9, he congratulated me and told me to keep up the great work. I told him that I wanted to get it even lower and he was happy to hear that. Now, if are getting way to many lows to often, then yeah, you should watch that, but most of the people I've talked to encourage those numbers. There was even a doctor who was interviewed on DLife, I forget his name, but he has diabetes and he keeps his numbers below 4.9 and tries to encourage his patients to do the same. Well good luck on your BG control.
