If OP didn't mention there had been a finger prick test, how are we to know? I read it as there had been traces of sugar found in the urine but the GP suggested doing bloods next week. Except with type 1 diabetes, that could be too late. But hey, better to not be an alarmist and risk your child's life than to be warned by someone not to delay, just in case.

Bloods finally taken and it wasn't as bad as I expected, so now we wait for the results.

From my knowledge of type 1 (and I'm by no means any kind of health professional) his finger prick test seems normal to me. I hope the results come back normal for you. If it is diabetes there is a bit of a silver lining (if you could say that at all) that eventually if it's within your means there are insulin pumps available which would remove the need to do needles however many times a day. My brother is currently working towards getting one for himself. Fingers crossed it was just a contaminated sample or just a uti or something easy fixed! Xx
