Weight gain diet in Diabetes type 2

I have been living with type 2 diabetes for six years now. Previously the condition was under control with right food, some medicine and regular modestly heavy exercise.

Recently, due to work and personal stress, undisciplined life style, and typhoid infection, my weight decreased drastically.

With food - exercise combination would help me gain weight in a quick and consistent manner?

I was given plain Insulin injection twice every day, during the treatment for diabetes, for one week. After that, I was prescribed Zoryl for another week. My diabetologist prescribed Metformin SR 500 after that, for two weeks that are yet to pass.

Composition for Zoryl 1mg (brand name) Tablet

is Glimepiride (1mg) (generic name).

Glimepiride is used along with diet and exercise, and sometimes with other medications, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Glimepiride lowers blood sugar by causing the pancreas to produce insulin (a natural substance that is needed to break down sugar in the body) and helping the body use insulin efficiently. This medication will only help lower blood sugar in people whose bodies produce insulin naturally.

Metformin is used alone or with other medications, including insulin, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Metformin is in a class of drugs called biguanides. Metformin helps to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. It decreases the amount of glucose you absorb from your food and the amount of glucose made by your liver. Metformin also increases your body's response to insulin, a natural substance that controls the amount of glucose in the blood.

Undergo HbA1c test once in every 3 months.

Please let me know your height and weight.
