Jothydev's Diabetes And Research Centre is named afterJothydev Kesavadev the one and only son of
Late P. Kesavadev and Smt. Seethalekshmy Dev. Dr. Jothydev, is the CEO and Director of Jothydev's Diabetes And Research Centre and the hospital is run by Living Longer Life Care Pvt Ltd.

Dr. Jothydev completed his M.B.B.S and MD in Internal Medicine from Govt. Medical College, Trivandrum. While he was doing his MD in Internal medicine, he got selected by the State Public Service Commission and joined as Lecturer in Internal Medicine in the same hospital. He continued as the Assistant Professor of Medicine and was very popular among the students for his bedside teaching and lecture classes.

In 1997 he started private practice in a tiny consultation room at Lekshmy Nilayam, his house situated at Mudavanmugal, Trivandrum .While working in Trivandrum Medical College he was interviewed by a team of Doctors and Civic Leaders and was selected for setting up a Diabetes Centre in Trivandrum in association with the world famous Mayo Clinic, USA. He went for fellowship training at Mayo Clinic along with his wife Sunitha Jothydev and son Krishnadev Jothydev. In 2001 itself he had more than 3000 diabetic patients on tele- medicine follow up, and he was assisted by Ms. Jayasree Lally, who joined his clinical practice in the year 1997.

Dr. Jothydev after completion of his training in USA, decided to come back to India, but unfortunately could not continue with the Government due to various reasons; the details of which are available else where. It was at this juncture that a few of his friends, well wishers and patients decided to form a Private Limited Company and a Diabetic center under the ownership aiming at providing world class preventive diabetic care. Soon the foundation stone was laid and the super structure was completed and the clinic started functioning from 07-04-2006. The practice at home was wound up and patients started coming to the clinic.

On May 10th 2008 Padmasree Mohanlal laid the foundation stone for the second    phase of the hospital building. Now the hospital is recognized as internationally approved technology centre for diabetes.
