The Erectile Dysfunction Profile (CheckUp M3) includes the most important laboratory tests to investigate the possible causes of this unpleasant condition.
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection. It is the most common male sexual dysfunction and most men experience it at some point in their lives. Erectile dysfunction can be transient due to fatigue, stress, or other psychological factors or it can last for a longer period of time. It can be a symptom of major depression or it can be due to diseases such as diabetes, spinal cord injuries, hormonal disorders as well as alcohol intake. Various medications (antidepressants, diuretics, some antihypertensives, etc.) may also play a role.
