Is your husband getting regular exercise? Exercise helps with blood sugar control.
Personally, I have found that if I eat a lower carb diet, avoiding bread, potatoes, rice, pasta (all the good stuff), I have better readings. I eat lots of green veggies, lean meats, salads and try and stay away from the other things.
Does he monitor his blood sugar regularly to see how certain foods affect him? If he takes his blood sugar 2 hrs after his meals, he'll know what to avoid and what to eat based on his levels.

In my opinion, Avandia and Actos products are the devil's spawn! I REFUSE to take them! In your hubby's case, Is he also controlling his diet (watching how many carbohydrates he ingests daily, moreso with each and every meal and snack)? If so, they apparently aren't doing the job, and I'd have him talk to his doctor and have his meds changed! (Preferably to something OTHER than anything with Avandia or Actos in it!)
