CBI office, Trivandrum on August 11, 2005
Dr.Jothydev was invited as the chief guest at the office of the CBI Trivandrum. Shri.Prem Kumar was the chief coordinator.An interactive awareness lecture was conducted in the presence of deputy director Shri. Hari Sena Varma, which went on for 2 hours, 45 minutes.The thickly packed audience were truly inquisitive and raised more than 50 queries on diabetes, treatment of hypothyroidism, high levels of cholesterol etc, etc

One question and answer:-
Ten years back, I was diagnosed to have a cholesterol of 240 mg%. I was told that it is marginally elevated according to the standards at that time and was adviced strict diet and exercise.5 years later, another doctor found that my TSH was elevated and hence low thyroid hormone is responsible for high cholesterol.I am presently on both Eltroxin and atorvastatin.Is it safe for me to continue with these drugs?

Jothydev's answer:-
It is absolutely safe to continue Eltroxin and Atorvastatin, provided the dose is optimal and all evaluations are complete so as to forsee any complications. Low thyroid hormone very commonly leads to elevated cholesterol levels which can produce heart attacks.Since you are quite fortunate to have this disease diagnosed early in life,you should be happily consuming medicines provided all investigations are periodically repeated,you will never develop any complications in the liver, muscle or kidney.Remember to see your doctor at least every 6 months.
