Hi!  I do not read those readings being here in the US but from what I gather in your post, the moods are from too high of sugars. When she is low, do you over feed her too much to bring back her sugar to a good number?  That could be the reason for the weight gain. I know of some pumpers that just gain weight too. When fixing a low sugar and she has eaten something to help, after 15 minutes goes by recheck her sugar. That will tell you if the sugar needs more food.
