A 30-year-old female asked:

Since 2012 esr is always high = 70 (0-15). rcp is always high= 5(0-0,5). is this due to my diabetes ( hba1c=6,6%), to my obesity ( bmi=45) or both?

That Sed Rate: is too high to be explained by your Diabetes OR your weight!!! You should have a "work-up" with some rheumatological tests! Speak with your Primary Care Provider!!! My opinion only Hope this helps! Dr Z
