My doctor just recently reduced my metformin to 1 500 mg tablet at dinner. He said if my A1C came back lower next time he might consider taking me completely off of it. My A1C was 6.5 in November. It was 5.9 in February, and my last one in June was 5.8. I go back to the doctor in October.
Have you really sat down with your doctor and talk to him about what you're doing to get your numbers down?
Every visit, I take him print outs of my stats so that he can see what my blood sugar readings have been looking like. Maybe take your log book(s) with you so he can see that their consistently lower. We've talked about what my meal planning is like too. He loves it when I give him stuff to look at but I wait until he's done with all of his talking so that he doesn't forget his train of thought. After I showed him everything at my last 2 visits, I didn't even have to ask, he just reduced my meds.
If your A1C is staying down, then by all means, talk to your doctor if he doesn't bring it up.
I always take a list of things to talk to the doctor about otherwise I'll forget.

I'll keep working at it. I'm worth it. You're worth it too.
Every day is a new day. Gotta keep on keepin' on, no matter what!
