BG (blood sugar) that high is not good.
What is his "pill for sugar"
the ants are probably after his sweet perspiration.
If he did not know about the ants has he lost feeling in his feet?

we do know that eating carbohydrates (carbs) raise BG.  Carbs are rice, wheat, potato, most fruits. any starch.
