One family’s war on diabetes
Mr Kumara used to think exercise was good enough, but changed his mind after attending a Let's Beat Diabetes talk for tertiary students. His family members now choose healthier choice options like brown rice or basmati rice, rather than refined carbohydrates. ST PHOTO: JONATHAN CHOO

These days, the family of Mr Kumara Karthik, 31, including his diabetic parents, eat basmati and brown rice, instead of plain white rice.
