As the others have said, you may be mis-diagnosed. But whether or not that is the case, you need to see an endo who specialises in diabetes for appropriate testing to be sure of your type and a review of your treatment.
This may help you improve your menu, but if your insulin production is failing you will need more than this: Test, Review, Adjust
Ohh yeah one more thing, any tips on gaining weight the healthy way for a diabetic??
Protein and fats (meats, fish, eggs, cheese etc) are a healthy way to add calories with minimal effects on blood glucose. But if your weight loss is a result of excessive BG levels the only way to improve things is to get that under control first.

140 is MUCH better than 210, good for you! Glad you have an app't. with an endo, hopefully s/he will be able to help you work out what's going on and the best tx.
