Primary Outcome Measures:
  • carotid intima media thickness [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Carotid Intima media thickness measured at baseline and after 12 months in 2 arms (placebo and statin)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • weight [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    weight, height and BMI recorded before and after intervention

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Lipid profile [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Complete lipid profile were recorded at baseline , 6 months and 12 months after intervention.

  • lipid profile [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Lipid profile measured at end of study

  • BMI [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    BMI neasured at baseline and at end of study
