Welcome to HCM.
Diabetes is one of the cause you always loose weight but your Hba1c is really good very well controlled.You can get a thyroid, lipid profile also checked.Also try checking your weight in same machine always which is calibrated, because there may be variations in the machines.Also take raw egg with milk in the morning in empty stomach.You can also consult a dietician for further management.
Take care.
