Hello rin . . . and welcome to our community. I agree with Richard, and I want to add that if your husband is worried about using increasing amounts of insulin, that isn't necessarily a bad thing, nor is it always the case. He can control what is needed to quite some degree.

You have already made changes in diet and portions, so maybe it won't be a huge leap to tweak it a little more. By reducing the fast-acting carbs you reduce the high glucose levels and that means less insulin is needed to maintain safe levels. And there is no need to go hungry - he can load up on proteins and fats without causing elevated blood sugars.

Given his age, I wonder if any tests were done to determine specifically what type he is. There are a couple of tests which can show decisively if he is a type 1, or perhaps type 1.5 or LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults).

Your doctor seems to have risen to the occasion better than some, and I wonder if you could discuss with him the possibilities here?
