Our expert says:
You've lost weight from insulin resistance? That's unusual because usually it goes the other way.
At this stage, 48kg is very light. That would be a concern of its own, and something you might look at addressing through exercise. The good news is that if you do exercise, then you can hopefully kill two birds with one stone, because anything that increases your lean mass (which will be a good thing) will also help lose fat (which is the goal for you).
So my advice is to do some weight training, to prevent that problem of getting thinner except where you want to. I'm not sure if getting to a gym and starting 3 or 4 days of training is an option for you, but that's what I'd recommend. Exercise will also form a key part of your health going forward. And finally, diet is vital. There's now some really good evidence that people who are insulin resistant or diabetic do really well on a diet that is lower in carbs, but it's a complex diet and so I think you might talk with someone about this!
