Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
It depends basically if he is having a proper diet and taking medicines properly it can be in some control.
I would suggest you consult a diabetologist in person for further evaluation and management. 
Ask him if he requires any dose adjustments.
Get a fasting, plst prandial and HbA1c levels also done.
Best regards.
