You are overweight by 10-12 kgs and yes this needs to be corrected to improve insulin resistance. You can start with avoiding simple sugars as far as possible, Eating Out' less, avoiding junk and have good quantity of fresh foods which are not processed like fruits, vegetables, soups, salads, nuts, low fat milk, curd etc. Combine these dietary changes with 30 -40 mins walk. If you wish to lose weight under professional guidance with diet plans which have food of your choice, you should opt for a customised diet program. We cannot draft and send a diet plan here as it needs lot of information, needs calculations and is a time taking process. You can consult me directly through Lybrate Private Consult if interested.

My urine sugar is 2 and ketone is nil
What it mean
I am taking insulin 3 times a day.
It means sugar is passing in urine. Normally it should not. Your body is utilizing sugar to produce energy. Ketones are produced when body is not able utilize glucose because of deficiency of insulin, and energy is produced by metabolism of fats. You need to increase the dose of insulin.

Sir, I want to know that is insulin resistance and pre diabetes is same term or both are different.
In insulin resistance, muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond properly to insulin and thus cannot easily absorb glucose from the bloodstream. As a result, the body needs higher levels of insulin to help glucose enter cells. The beta cells in the pancreas try to keep up with this increased demand for insulin by producing more. As long as the beta cells are able to produce enough insulin to overcome the insulin resistance, blood glucose levels stay in the healthy range. Over time, insulin resistance can lead to type 2 diabetes and prediabetes because the beta cells fail to keep up with the body's increased need for insulin. Without enough insulin, excess glucose builds up in the bloodstream, leading to diabetes, prediabetes, and other serious health disorders. Insulin resistance increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and prediabetes. Prediabetes usually occurs in people who already have insulin resistance. Although insulin resistance alone does not cause type 2 diabetes, it often sets the stage for the disease by placing a high demand on the insulin-producing beta cells. In prediabetes, the beta cells can no longer produce enough insulin to overcome insulin resistance, causing blood glucose levels to rise above the normal range. Once a person has prediabetes, continued loss of beta cell function usually leads to type 2 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes have high blood glucose. Over time, high blood glucose damages nerves and blood vessels, leading to complications such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, and lower-limb amputations. Studies have shown that most people with prediabetes develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years, unless they change their lifestyle. Lifestyle changes include losing 5 to 7 percent of their body weight—10 to 14 pounds for people who weigh 200 pounds—by making changes in their diet and level of physical activity.

I am suffering from insulin resistance and having mild acanthosis nigricans
Please help me how to treat it.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Insulin resistance invariably develops in obese and overweight patients. This also is a sign that in future that person is likely to develop diabetes. In your case with a BMI of 35.56 kgs/M2, you are already in grade 2 obesity. That is the reason for developing Insulin Resistance (IR). Weight resuction can help reduce IR and also postpone development of diabetes (if already not developed). Thanks.
