Is this for you?
The Erectile Dysfunction Test can help to indicate erectile dysfunction in adult men. This is a common condition that affects many men, most commonly men over the age of 40. However, it’s worth noting that it can impact men of any age. While it is not dangerous, it can impact your daily routine and lifestyle and there are various treatments that can help to reduce its effects.
Using our simple, at-home test kit can help to indicate the presence of erectile dysfunction, as well as providing insight into potential causes of this condition. Your doctor can then recommend a course of treatment.

Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disease which is becoming increasingly common across all ages. Up to one third of adults in the UK have prediabetes and are at risk of developing diabetes. It is caused by the interplay between lifestyle factors and our genes. Lack of exercise, making unhealthy diet choices and being overweight all increase the likelihood of developing diabetes. It is important to identify diabetes early; if you have raised blood glucose and are at the stage described as prediabetic, then you can still bring blood glucose levels back down by making lifestyle changes. Once diabetes is diagnosed it is vitally important to manage your blood glucose levels carefully to avoid many of the devastating side-effects of the disease which can damage nerves, blood vessels, kidneys and eyes. Diabetes is a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease as well as some cancers and is a major cause of decreased life-expectancy.
Cholesterol Status: Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in the blood that plays an essential role in how the cells in the body work. However, too much cholesterol in the blood can have a serious effect on your health as it increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. There are many factors which raise the risk of cardiovascular disease and we are learning more all the time about the complex biological processes which lead to a heart attack. There are different types of cholesterol and some are more dangerous than others. Cholesterol is manufactured in the liver and comes from the food we eat. Diet, family history, obesity and lack of exercise can all have negative impact cholesterol levels.
Hormones: Hormones govern every activity of your body, from growth and metabolism to reproduction and your sleep cycle. Even a small imbalance in your hormone levels can have a significant impact on your health, affecting your mood and energy levels as well as fertility and libido. Hormones are known as chemical messengers which are manufactured in your glands and released into your bloodstream. They instruct your body in everything it does – regulating appetite, growth, mood and reproduction. Generally they keep the body functioning and in balance. Hormone disorders are common and can often be put right through hormone replacement therapy or lifestyle changes. Hormone levels fluctuate throughout the day and also, for women, through the reproductive cycle.
Thyroid function: The main job of the thyroid gland is to produce the hormones T3 and T4 (thyroxine). These hormones need to be produced in the right amounts to keep you healthy, as they control a wide range of functions in your body, like your metabolism (the way your body turns what you eat and drink into energy), your body temperature and the use of fat and glucose stores.
If you have too much thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism), or too little (hypothyroidism), it can make you unwell and should be treated to correct the levels. This usually involves medication in the form of a tablet prescribed by your doctor. ED is usually associated with hyperthyroidism, but can happen in both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
Prepare for your Erectile Dysfunction Blood Test by following these instructions. Please take your sample before 10am. Avoid fatty foods for 8 hours before your test, you do not need to fast. Avoid taking your sample from a finger used to apply hormone gels/pessaries/patches in the past 4 weeks. Use gloves to apply these. Do not take biotin supplements for 2 days before this test, discuss this with your doctor if it is prescribed.
