Has he been uncontrolled for a long time? he could be throwing up because of high blood sugars, or it could be happening because he has developed gastroparesis.

This is a good question for his doctor, not an internet message board.

Too little information to provide any valuable answers here. MrsCora01 gave an excellent answer presuming your brother is diabetic.

You would get better answers by calling his doctor or going to an urgent care clinic or hospital emergency room if this seems life-threatening.
