    Record what he ate and then record the blood sugar figures. All data is useful.

    This. As a T1, on insulin, I get asked to keep a food diary and blood sugars before diabetic appointments.....

    His slightly elevated hbA1C will be caused by blood sugars that arise from times when he's eaten all his dinner and times when he hasn't.... Normal eating includes times when kids are picky and don't finish their food. (I was a very picky eater as a child, luckily I grew out of it as soon as I left home.)

    sorry, i dont quite understand this bit.

    4 times a week? or 4 times a day? fasting, pre-meals and post meals is more than 4 times a day. perhaps you could ring the endo secretary and get some clarification on this, especially as your son is needle phobic.
