Last November, Miss Christine Kunasekaran found out she had to take medication for hypertension. The ITE student, who was 107kg at her heaviest, realised she had to do something drastic. “I’m quite young to be taking medication for that,” said Miss Kunasekaran, now 23, referring to the condition that is usually associated with people twice her age. She also developed impaired glucose tolerance.
