    Hi all, this may seem a strange problem, but I could do with some advise.

    Leading up to being diagnosed in Oct 16 I had lost 3 stone, and was feeling unwell, by then I weighed around 13 stone and at a tiny bit over 6ft was starting to look a bit skinny. Gradually over the time since diagnosis I’ve dropped to 11.5 stone, my diets pretty healthy and I’d like to increase my weight sustainably and in a healthy manner.

    My hba1c has been consistently 6.0-6.4 tests varied from 6-9 months, but also self funding of the libre has shown good control.

    The consultant has said I should be grateful as I’ll likely increase in weight later on in life. I would really like to put some weight on and get back to at least 13 stone to look a bit better and not feel the cold so much.

    Can anyone offer and help / recommendations
