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.  Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
