Looking at general practitioner Dr R. Shalini Devi today, you would not believe that 10 years ago, she weighed 118kg.

In 2010, Dr Shalini was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome and hypothyroidism. She was on medication for two years and attempted various diets and exercise regimes but found it hard to reduce her weight.
