Erectile Dysfunction Test

There are a few different blood tests that can be used to diagnose erectile dysfunction (ED), including:


-A test to measure the amount of testosterone in your blood

-A test to measure the level of sugar in your blood

-A test to check for infection or inflammation in your penis


If you're experiencing symptoms of ED, it's important to get tested as soon as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment can help improve your chances of successful treatment. Talk to your doctor about which blood tests might be right for you.

There are a few different blood tests that can be used to help diagnose erectile dysfunction. One of the most common is a test called the "penile Doppler ultrasound." This test is used to measure blood flow in the penis, and can help determine if there is a problem with blood flow that may be contributing to the man's erectile problems. In addition, other blood tests may be used to check for signs of diabetes or heart disease, both of which can also contribute to erectile dysfunction. By identifying and treating any underlying causes, doctors can often help men overcome their erectile difficulties.

If you are experiencing erectile dysfunction, it is important to see your doctor so that he or she can determine the cause and recommend appropriate treatment. In many cases, simple lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking or losing weight, can improve erectile function. If these measures do not help, there are a number of effective treatments available, including oral medications, vacuum devices, and surgery. With proper diagnosis and treatment, most men with erectile dysfunction can experience improvement in their condition.


If you are concerned about your erectile function, speak to your doctor. He or she can help you determine the cause of your problem and recommend appropriate treatment. For more information on erectile dysfunction, visit the website of the National Institutes of Health.

SHGB

SHGB (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) is a protein that binds estradiol and testosterone and carries them through the bloodstream. SHGB is mostly produced by the liver. SHGB directly impacts the levels of free testosterone available. With too much SHGB, your body has fewer unbound sex hormones for use, which can affect your ability to maintain an erection.

Testosterone

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone that is produced in the testicles. Testosterone regulates sex drive and sperm production, among many other male characteristics. Low levels of testosterone will directly impact a male's ability to keep and maintain a solid erection. Therefore, finding out if you have abnormal testosterone levels is essential when checking for erectile dysfunction in males of all ages. Testosterone levels have increasingly become a concern in western countries, with levels steadily declining since 1999 among younger males.

Free Androgen Index

The free androgen index (FAI) measures the amount of free biologically available testosterone in your body. Androgen is a term which defines hormones such as testosterone that produce male characteristics such as a deep voice, increased muscularity and the enlargement of the penis. The majority of testosterone in the body is bound to albumin and SHGB, with only 2% of testosterone being free. This biomarker is evaluated to consider the amount of free testosterone available for use, which can impact erectile functioning.

Lipid Profile

Our advanced lipid profile test checks the cholesterol levels in your body. Studies have consistently displayed a correlation between abnormal cholesterol levels and erectile dysfunction. This is because cholesterol can cause blockages in the arteries, reducing blood flow, which in turn can impact your ability to maintain an erection.

Symptoms of erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is increasing dramatically in younger age groups. While there are many causes, symptoms include:


  • An inability to maintain a solid erection
  • A reduced sex drive
  • Problems with becoming hard from aroused for intercourse
  • A failure to have successful sexual intercourse due to erectile problems
