Default Weight questions...

I am trying to figure out if I need to do more to maxx's diet. I believe that he is underweight for his breed and age, he just turned 1 year on 5.5.14, and he was just weighted tonight and it shows that he only weighs 70 lbs.... When he was 5 months old he weighted 51 lbs. he gets 3 cups of iams dog food, 2 times daily, he gets milk bones daily and sometimes a table scrap here and there. He has been checked out from his vet and he has health issues that would cause this. Now, is this a normal weight at this age? He is my first Gsd and I'm not sure what to expect exactly. My vet recommended this recipe called 'satin balls' to put on weight and it has lots of calories and good vitamins in it for him as well, it can be his whole diet or just given as treats. Any suggestions would be appreciated thank you!!
