Type 2 diabetes

Just had an e mail from my son (aged 42) to say he's been diagnosed with "off the scale diabetes type 2 and needless to say have been googling like mad and scaring myself. Can't get hold of him on the phone (he's not in the UK) I do know people with this but I'm worrying about "off the scale" and what that means. Can anyone offer any advice/support please. I know he's a man but I'm his mom and you never stop worrying about your kids no matter how old. Thanks.

His bloods will be too high. Type two is easily controlled by diet (less carbs) and taking the tablets. Losing weight helps.

My child is Type 1.
