In brief: Varies

Signs of diabetes are: frequent urination, thirst, blurry vision, hunger, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, frequent infections, wounds that heal slowly, tingling in hands or feet, or you can have no symptoms at all.
Best thing he can do is keep his weight normal, remains active, see his doc for regular check ups.
