I'm type 1 and absolutely hate anyone who has never experienced a hypo telling me what to do. When you have a hypo all you want to do is eat until you feel better. There is no sense of moderation in those 10-15 minutes while you recover.
He has a doctor to tell him what to do. As a friend you should just make sure he's okay. People become extremely irritable when they're having a hypo, so starting out an argument is the worst thing you can do. Having slightly high blood sugar levels is not going to kill him.

he took fast acting insulin- its fine. i doubt all he does in life is go hypo and then eat chocolate and drink coke. I'm sure he knows how to have a healthy diet. Just how you might decide one day to skip lunch cos you got greedy and ate two bars of chocolate, he can do the same. It was a one of thing for goodness sake, why the fuss! It must be annoying for him to have people comment on his eating habits just because he is diabetic, he has been taught how to look after his blood glucose and doesn't need people telling him he is doing things wrong. Especially if its a one off.
