    Start a strength training program and increase your daily caloric intake. You will start gaining weight.
    Also, if you find your BGs are higher than you would like them to be then your body won't utilize the food you eat as efficiently. Fix this and eat more.

    Cherish the thinness while you can, the human body has a way of being cruel as you get older!
    LOL.
    Seriously, I know what it is like, I was thin until I reached 30 years of age, I was 6 feet, 2 inches weighing 175-180 lbs, then life came knocking at my door with its companions (diabetes, weight gain, and a host of others) what a party we had!
    When it was over I weighed 237 lbs, not a lot for most people, but for me way too much, I was not used to it, so I did something about it, I went back to being the person that I had known all of my life, "me."
    M y weight gain was a result of the changes within my body as a diabetic, we all react differently to having diabetes, as strange as it may seem.
    Everyone said "How can you gain so much weight?" and "How can you be a diabetic as a vegetarian?"
    The human body has a unique way of taking very good care of itself.
    Talk to your diabetes management team and a nutritionist, let them devise a plan for you with focus on your nutritional needs, be safe and healthy, never sick and sorry!
