In brief: Many things

Type 2 diabetes is difficult to manage and requires alot of discipline and hard work.
First you have to accept this reality. It's not going to be easy. Second, focus on what's being put in his body. It has to be a carbohydrate restricted diet. If he's overweight, gotta start on the road to weight loss. It's a long road so be patient! finally, work with your doctor for treatment if needed.

In brief: Education

Most hospitals offer free or very affordable classes by registered dieticians concerning diabetes.
A great majority of diabetes 2 could be controlled with diet. We just do not follow diets very well as our taste buds are self serving. Diet is where you need to start. Inquire.
