5.8 is a good nadir. You would only need carbs if nadir was lower than that, and the rest of the 12 hours his numbers were good.

Meaning, if most of the 12 hours he was below 15, but his nadir was too low, he might need a small carb before nadir.

We want stable sugars, but not higher stable necessarily. Stable usually means a good range of blood sugar, without big highs or lows.
