Although the weight gain still sucks, I have gained 17kg in 12 months ago I was pretty skinny when I was diagnosed, and in the last month or two I have started exercising most days, for at least 1 hr 5 times a week. I thought maybe I was just gaining muscle although my clothes are tighter not looser Cant notice any weight loss.
I find I am hungrier than I used to be, portion sizes are the issue, I also have a sweet tooth, which I never used to have.
Avoid gluten-free packaged cakes and biscuits, they contain more calories than other cakes and biscuits.
High protein diets with lots of fruit/veg I think is the way to go, I have set myself a goal of 5 kg by Christmas, wish me luck!

I finally had to admit to myself that I'm a total carb addict. I cut out bread, pasta, and rice ('cept for 2 cheat dinners a week and the occasional 1/2 cup brown rice w/ a meal)and ate lean proteins and fruts and veggies. I lost 20 lbs. in about 3-4 months and felt a lot better.
Working on that last 20...
