  1. A is the answer and the winners are Eze and Clement
    Details Below:
    Caution should be undertaken when thyroxine is started in elderly patients and
    in patients with cardiovascular disorders, as there could be a rapid increase
    in metabolic rate leading to problems including anginal pain, arrhythmias,
    palpitations, tachycardia. In diabetic patients, caution should be used, as its
    introduction may interfere with antidiabetic therapy. It should be started in
    small doses at small increments
