Diiferent types and symptoms of diabetics

My boyfriend is a diabetic and I've been trying to find out through the internet what type he has, even know the doctor diagnosed him as type 2. He quit going to a doctor a few years back and doesn't even test his blood sugar levels. A few years ago, he was having problems with his legs and went to see a doctor. The doctor diagnosed him as type 2 and he gave him all these medications to take and test his blood levels frequently. But he lost an extreme amount of weight, was weak and sleepy all the time, so he basically quit taking the medications, going to the doctor and testing his blood sugar levels. He say he feels great and he gain back his weight, but watches his intake on anything with too much sugar.

I didn't know that flour, pasta and or forms of that type of food, as you intake it, your body turns it into sugar and that is why he has to get all wheat bread. Another thing as I've been looking up is the symptoms he's been having such as eye blinking frequently, sniffs frequently, drinks like theres no tomorrow, urinates a lot through the night only, and also difficulty sleeping, and not because of the urinating.

Here is what I've found out through the internet;

He has a little bit of symptoms of many types of diabetes. For one thing he has symptoms of Diabetes Insipidus (DI) is a disorder in which there is an abnormal increase in urine output, fluid intake and often thirst. It causes symptoms such as urinary frequency, nocturia (frequent awakening at night to urinate). But its good for him because One of the many health care concerns with diabetes type-2 patients is to stay hydrated. Water is, according to diabetes-specialists, important for everybody, but especially for diabetes-patients, because decrease of the hydration-level could cause serious health problems for diabetics.

And then symptoms of type 2 diabetes, the Eye blinking; Aim to evaluate blinking patterns in patients with diabetes mellitus and whether blinking contributes to the formation of superficial punctate keratopathy in diabetic patients. Results in patients with diabetes, the average mean and maximum inter-blinking times were longer, the average coefficient of variation of inter-blinking time was higher, and the average blinking rates were lower than those in patients without diabetes.

Symptoms of type 1 diabetes of loss of sleep, insomnia; Sleep disturbances appear to increase the risk of developing diabetes in men but not in women. The researchers say there are several ways that lack of sleep might lead to diabetes. One possibility is that poor sleep is related to activation of the stress system, another is that sleep debt may impact carbohydrate metabolism. While sleeplessness can promote diabetes, symptoms associated with high blood glucose, low blood glucose (hypoglycemia), and some diabetes complications can also interfere with sleep. If your blood glucose level is high, you may be in the bathroom urinating every few hours during the night. Hypoglycemia can cause nightmares, night sweats, or headache; hunger that wakes you up to get food; or symptoms associated with daytime hypoglycemia such as rapid heartbeat, dizziness, or shaking.

My boyfriend is stubborn and he won't go to the doctor for these symptoms and he has most all of them, to help him it is like talking to the wall because I can't get him to go to the darn doctor...
