After your doctor has conducted a complete interview with you regarding your impotence or erectile dysfunction they may or may not schedule you for a number of medical tests. While there is no exact test that can be run to test for impotence there are several tests that can be run to try and rule out any underlying conditions that might be present. Here is a look at some of the tests that might be ordered by your doctor.
Complete Blood Count. A complete blood count is a routine blood test that is run by doctors. The most common thing that doctors are looking for is anemia which is the cause of fatigue and often the cause of impotence.
Liver and Kidney Tests. Impotence can be a result of your kidney or liver not working as it should. These tests will give the doctor an idea if they are working properly and what might be the cause.
Lipid Profile. Lipid tests are run to see how much fat or cholesterol is in the body. If the lipid tests show high levels of fat it could be the cause of your impotence as this will prevent your body from having the proper circulation and that can cause erectile dysfunction.
Thyroid Tests. The thyroid is responsible for creating and secreting sexual hormones. If the thyroid is not properly working it could result in your body not receiving the sexual hormones that it should. When the body does not receive the proper amount of sexual hormones it could cause impotence in many males.
