Is there any possibility of having tolerance to antidiabetics if taken repeatedly for years?

My father was diagnosed with type2 diabetes this yr.
After controlling rice(staple) consumption between 80~100g to control blood sugar he's constantly losing 3 kilos every month after then(he's now 62kg @176cm). but he's reluctant to increase carb consumption 'cos his blood sugar level after 1 hour is already 170~200. I suggest him to take antidiabetics but he's also reluctant to it because he fears developing tolerance 2 it. Granpa also tripled his dose b4 his death compared to first diagnosis.

Hi Antibiotics are for a virus, high sugar levels are not a virus. OK

In another post to your find a post of mine so read this link, your find it so interesting.

Just copy into google to open and read.

The next thing would be to get ginger into something like lemon tea and add a good head teaspoon of ginger into that 3 times a day, see how he gets on with that.

Hope all this helps him.

Good Luck
