His blood sugar is too high which indicates diabetes. The weight loss is part of it. 900 blood sugar reading is not uncommon in untreated diabetes. No need to be devastated. Need to get on the right medication and diet. Once his sugar is under control he'll do better. He will learn over time how to manage.
