Hello doctor,

I am a 43 year old male. I have an active lifestyle with a focus on my diet and daily health regimen. I do not have any significant medical history, except for high cholesterol levels. I want to boost my testosterone levels too, as I hardly have any libido. Unless absolutely warranted, I am not comfortable taking allopathic drugs, though I do take vitamins and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. Please help me evaluate my annual medical report, which I have attached.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen your complete list of investigations (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The following are my observations and suggestions:

  • There is an increased cholesterol level, subclinical hypothyroidism, and raised hs-CRP (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein)Your BMI(body mass index) comes under overweight, but you do not need to worry about it though.
  • Well, concerning the medications, you may need to start taking them for your health.
  • As your hs-CRP, lipids, and thyroid levels are altered, there is an increased risk of coronary or cardiac problems. It helps that you do not have diabetes or any other ailments which further increase the risk. Hence, I suggest you try taking the following medicines:
  1. Tablet Thyronorm (Levothyroxine) 50 mcg, once daily early in the morning.
  2. Tablet Atorvastatin 20 mg and Aspirin 75 mg, once daily at night.
  • Have a healthy and active lifestyle by taking a balanced diet and maintaining a good workout routine.
  • Take iodized salt and low-fat diet. Try to include fruits, vegetables, fish, and antioxidant-rich food like tomatoes in your diet.
  • What is your recent blood pressure reading? Do you have fatigue, malaise, consistent weight gain, constipation, sleepiness, cold intolerance or recent memory disturbances?
