Low testosterone: See a fertility physician to do appropriate tests and add medication to raise your sperm count. Depending on how low the sperm count is, and how responsive your count is to medication, you can still conceive a child with more advanced reproductive technology, but in most cases, the medications will be sufficient.

Yes: Having been in this situation, i can tell you that balancing out hormones in men is just as important as doing so for women. Men lose their sex drive, become Insulin resistant, lose their vitality. I'll post a page later that describes my own personal treatment success. I feel great at almost 52 years of age.

I have hyperparathyroidism due to vitamin d2 deficiency, is it due to my obesity BMI 42, I also have low testosterone, and but B12 deficiency

Endocrinology 52 years experience
Yes: Obese people tend to have low vitamin d because they require higher doses to raise their level and they tend to spend less time in the sun with enough skin exposed to make vitamin d. The hyperparathyroidism is secondary to the vitamin d deficiency because you can not absorb calcium with a low vitamin d so the body will raise the parathyroid level and take calcium from your bones. Take vitamin d.

4-8 weeks, 12 most: A repair is a repair, you cut and spice and heal. That is only part of the overall process. Therapy is mandatory to rehab the muscles and strengthen the repair. 1. Heat stretch and massage 2. Myofascial release with spray and stretch, acupuncture and trigger point needling. 3. Add in magnesium to allow the muscles to be more supple and soft.
