    It's very good. I'm happy with results around there but personally wouldn't want to go any lower though a few here do.

    My Dr told me to aim for between 5.5 and 6.5 in the morning. I prefer to go for 4.5 to 5.5 as I feel best around those levels but the odd blip I can live with.

    Huge well done on getting it down so quickly.

    I agree. My DN said the same. Occasionally I'll be down in the low 4s and starting to feel hypo, so I try to stay nearer 5 by adjusting my Basal insulin.

    I've not had a fasting reading that low. I think it depends on your medication, I'm not on medication so wouldn't be worried but I think you are so possibly someone with more knowledge could help you. Well done on your improvements. It took me 6 months to get the control I now have.
