Our expert says:
Adult onset of diabetes is usually type 2 diabetes that can be controlled by using only oral medication but in some cases, if the diabetes is not well controlled, you can add long acting subcutaneous insulin injections. I really doubt that he has type 1 diabetes. Consult your father's doctor for an explanation.
