I am unsure of the cause of your husband's diarrhea. He needs to see his family doctor and be seen by a GI doctor as he may need a colonoscopy. Continual diarrhea is abnormal, even in a diabetic.

If nothing abnormal is found, then have you tried anything to "bulk' up the stool as if it was less liquidly, he may be able to control it?
