Non specific ESR: Mild increased ESR is common and non specific - it can be caused by inflammation or infection of any kind, by anemia, by pregnancy, and by certain drugs (EG, Dextran, methyldopa, oral contraceptives, penicillamine, procainamide, theophylline, and vitamin A). This test is more useful as a marker that indicates improvement or worsening of a previously diagnosed condition.
