Tell your husband he's going to die in very short order from a heart attack or stroke IF he doesn't go blind first. Those kinds of numbers will land him on a dialysis machine and do permanent liver damage not to mention the aterial damage in his legs and heart.
Its kinda like smoking. You can tell a person til your blue in the face and until they decide for themselves to make a lifestyle change, you are beating a dead horse. Truely, those numbers are a quick path to self destruction, and if he's not lucky, it will be slow and painful.
So whats the solution? GO TO THE DOCTOR AND GET MEDS!!! THEN concentrate on a lifestyle change. We can give you all the advice but if he's not going to go to the doctor, its a total waste of time. As far as the meds go, I was in the same monetary situation and you can get the meds you need offshore (Mexico, Canada, etc.) for way cheap. Get the docs to give you a couple months worth of samples. Lots of ways to get cheap meds if you start looking. Please please please realize that he is way past the point of controlling this with diet. Its just not gonna happen!!
Get him to a doctor
