Did my doctor diagnose me wrong?

Patient

Q: Before I got pregnant I weighed about 110 lbs and had more energy than a five year old. During pregnancy I gained 80 lbs and since then I have only lost about 20 of it. I went to a local doc and they told me i still had gestational diabetes that I apparently had gotten during pregnancy. they put me on metforman which did not work, I then tried janumet which I have been on for about 6 months and I don't think that is working either...still weigh the same, I still have low as ever energy, motivation, and extreme fatigue, and Its been more than a year since Ive been pregnant! My question is could they have diagnosed me wrong and if so what do you think it is? I just want to feel like myself again and am afraid I never will.
