hypoparathyroid

i am a 20 year old male college student. on tuesday i was formally diagnoised with a hypoparathyroid. my PHT was 5 pg/mL. i had some more blood work done to see what the root cause of my low PTH was. i dont see the endocronologist until oct.21st. my primary doctor told me that hypoparathyroidism could potentially be a cause for (toxic delirium-psychosis, insomnia, memory loss, sexual problems, muscle weakness, and fatiuge) severel of which symptoms i have experianced. i wont know my complete blood results until some time next week. most of the blood work i have had so far, came back normal. with the exception of slightly elevated serium calcium, and hemoglobin but i did have a few numbers which were more distressing. i have now had my my testosterone tested 3 times the first time my Total Testosterone was 323, second time 532, and most recently 505, all of which are concidered low for someone of my age, particularly for someone as physically active as myself. my doctor had few anwsers for me, as i am only the second patient he had ever diagnoised with secondary hypoparathyroidism.  my doctor said there is a high posability the cause of my condition is idiopathic, and more then likely easily correctible. so i see an endocronologist in 4 meeks. but as far as the lowered total testosterone levels, could my hypoparathyroid ultimatly be related to my lowered total testosterone?? and how "affective" and "safe" are the GNC testosterone booster suplements??

i still have yet to recieve all of my test results, i wont get them all in until next week tuesday. but i just found out my FSH is 1.5 mIU/mL. FSH should be between 1.6 - 8.0 mIU/mL. ideally a man aged 20-30 wants to have an FSH level of at least 2.0 mIU/mL.

Multiple things are going on and I have to venture on this - espeically on the testosterone abnormal levels...

Have you had a work up on your adrenals? - I think you need these tests too. You may find an ACTH is the only test most will preform to see if your adrenals are in critical shape but also take into consideration you should look at saliva testing to check these as well.

I can't say how well these supplements work but testosterone deficiency is linked to DHEA and that would be better to address than an OTC teste supplement.
