I forgot to answer a few questions.
Yes, they have done the HbA1C test all 3 times he has been in the clinic since last September. Today the receipt says they did a CMP and the hemoglobin glycated test.
Yes he has a glucometer, he seems to use it every 3 days or so. At first he did it about 4 times a day, but now he does not see a reason to do it as often. I just checked, it looks like he has stopped writing down the numbers in the journal. The few times I have been standing by when he checked his bs, it has been in the lower 200's, although i have seen it in the 300's.
