I am Diabetic and Celiac. I'm 23 and weight around 75-80Lbs, height 4'10. I know that is underweight, two years ago before being diagnosed with Celiac I lost around 20Lbs, used to weight around 100Lbs. I have not been able to put the weight back on.
I am on Metformin 500mg 2x day. I eat a small breakfast, usually half banana and egg, can't eat more than 20g carbs or sugar goes too high, over 170. For lunch I take my pill and can handle about 40-50g carbs, then for dinner I take my pill again and eat about 40-50g carbs, then have a before dinner snack of around 20g carbs, always adding some protein and fiber if possible. Is that enough? I feel like I am not having enough food as to gain back the weight but can't eat more because the pills only work for that much carbs.
There's also the possibility that I might have been misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes and might be developing type 1. Is that possible? What is the amount of carbs I should be eating?
