ERECTILE DSYFUNCTION

It is defined as the inability to achieve an erection sufficient for penetrative sex and maintain the erection during sexual activity. 

The following are necessary to make a diagnosis:

1.    A medical history: to rule out loss of libido or elicit the possible causes. Possible causes could be from physiological or physical factors, medication or lifestyle.

2.    A physical examination: to reveal physical causes or underlying risk factors

3.    Laboratory tests: the following may be needed to evaluate erectile dysfunction

  • Complete blood counts
  • Urinalysis because an abnormal urinalysis may be a sign of diabetes mellitus and kidney damage.
  • Lipid profile as high levels of LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) in the blood promotes atherosclerosis.
  • Blood glucose levels, high blood glucose levels may be a sign of diabetes mellitus.
  • Liver enzymes and liver function tests because advanced liver disease(cirrhosis) can result in hormonal imbalance and gonad dysfunction leading to low testosterone levels.
  • Total testosterone levels: Blood samples for total testosterone levels should be obtained in the early morning (before 8 a.m.) because of wide fluctuations in the testosterone levels throughout the day. A low total testosterone level suggests hypogonadism.
  • Measurement of other hormones may provide clues to other underlying causes of testosterone deficiency and erectile problems, such as pituitary disease or adrenal gland abnormalities.
  • PSA levels: PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood levels and prostate examination to exclude prostate cancer is important before starting testosterone treatment since testosterone can aggravate prostate cancer.
     

4.    Imaging tests may be necessary
 

Our findings from your examination and tests performed will be discussed with you and further recommendations made.
