Keeping weight on a diabetic dog

So my dog was diagnosed with diabetes 6-8 months ago. She is a 14 year old pitbull, she loves to eat. We feed her twice a day and give her the insulin when she is eating. Our dog has a HUGE issue keeping weight on. We feed her puppy food and one can of wet mixed in to encourage her to eat. She can down the bowl pretty easy but keeping weight in her is a CHORE! We finally have this diabetes thing under control. now we need to just get some weight on her and keep it that way. Any advice? I almost wonder if feeding her 3 times a day for a short period would help.
