Doctor insights on:
Esr 33 Mmhr
Nothing: This is a famously unreliable test in any case, with a lot of random variation from lab conditions. Only if it's way elevated does it mean anything at all, and even so, it's not something to be treated. Life's difficult enough without fretting over labs that are just general indicators of health. ...Read more
Mch is 25.3 normal range is 27.0-33,0, my mchc is 31.3 normal is 32.0-36.0 and my esr is 23. Do I need to be concerned?
How much is Hb?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, none of the results are a cause for concern if your hemoglobin is normal. ...Read more
I recently had blood examination and had ESR level at 23. Man 33 years old. Is that bad? I can't see the normal levels anywhere. Please advise. Thanks
Means nothing: I'm a pathologist and consider that normal. Sed rate is hard to do correctly in any case, and the results mean nothing whatever in isolation. If you had symptoms and I was worried about serious systemic inflammatory disease, I'd actually be reassured by this fairly low value. ...Read more
I've back pain. My ESR report result is 33 and MRI says altrd marrow signal intensity in ri8 side of t8 vertebral body postero-inferiorily.
CBC: WBC 3.46,Neutropenia 22% & Lymphocytosis 66%. ESR of 16 1st hr & 33 2nd hr. Normal everything else. Had a cold recently. What does it indicate?
Need for: Investigation. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your neutrophil count is abnormally low and investigation would require more history, physical examination and some tests. It would be prudent to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests. ...Read more

A lot: Of these values are related to the intauterine demise of the fetus they should be repeated in a period to see how they react when your normalise ...Read more
Hi. My ESR count is 33. I am suffering from shoulder pain, headeche and problem in throat. What is goings wrong with me. What should I do?
We can't tell: I'd ignore the sed rate. It's helpful only if it is very high and lacks specificity. You probably have three different health issues. For each of these, you need a history and physical exam. I appreciate your interest, but there's no magic answers here or anywhere else to give a diagnosis to a mixed group of probably-unrelated findings. ...Read more
Hscrp 9.56 mg/l, ESR 36, eosinophils 0.46, total chlstrol 218, LDL 146, ratio 4.64 bilirubin 4, sgpt 127, sgot 79 gamma 33, vit d 6.8. Fatty liver?
Depends: Your liver studies are elevated, indicating there may be something going on with the liver. Your lipids are also high and this can predispose to fatty liver. However, other factors like viral hepatitis, alcohol, or certain medications can also raise the liver markers. You should follow up with your doctor or a specialist since imaging studies and/or liver biopsy may be necessary for diagnosis,. ...Read more
Cause of Anemia in female (57) where Hb(10.6), PCV (33), RBC(3.6), Platelet (1.2L) & ESR (52) while WBC (5.9K), MCV(93), MCH(29.5) & MCHC(31.6).
Needs medical check:
Anemia can be caused by many conditions. The common causes are from bleeding from GI tract or reduced production of RBCs in the bone marrow.
This person should go see her regular physician(if she has one) as he/she may have previous record of her Hb which will help to know if this is a chronic condition or something new that will require further testing to look for a cause. ...Read more

It really depend on om how high your fever is.are you having any chills or night sweat if you are living in the west we will said it is a virus you are from pakistan and the chance of bacteria or unusual infection is more likely. So it is very hard to say if it is serious or not.
See an infection disease specialist for help ...Read more
Everything: Even drinking a glass of water. Sed rate means nothing whatsoever in isolation. It's hard to do right, nobody's going to do anything with the information, and it's not a warning of hidden disease. We order it simply in case there's some other illness that it might illuminate. ...Read more
Means little: The "sed rate" is ordered to shed light on other findings, both clinical and lab. It's a primitive test and one that's easy to do wrong. In my book, this is fine; don't conclude you're sick simply because this falls outside a reference range. ...Read more
Need more info....: Your question is too vague — how "high" is high? Remember, as doctors we do not just treat a number — we need clinical correlation. What symptoms were you having at the time.? What is the total WBC count? Lymphocyte count? Why were you tested in the first place? The additional info will get you a better answer when you see the doctor face-to-face and have a discussion with him or her. ...Read more
Non-specific: A sed rate of 40 is elevated, but alone is non-specific and can be caused by several underlying inflammatory causes. If you have pains and they persist, it would be recommended to continue to get a follow-up examination and evaluation by your treating dr. Who can use the sed rate elevation as one test already done in his/her diagnosing process. Best wishes. ...Read more
Relax: How do you FEEL? I wouldn't give this a moment's thought if you feel well and have no other evidence of disease. Sed rate means nothing whatsoever in isolation. It's hard to do right, nobody's going to do anything with the information, and it's not a warning of hidden disease. We order it simply in case there's some other illness that it might illuminate. ...Read more
Non Specific Test:
Esr (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) is a non-specific test unless there is a certain diagnosis when you check ESR to track the improvement or deterioration.
By itself it is not of much value. It can be high in any inflammation or infection, even a simple sore throat or common cold or flu.
Routinely it is not checked in the office on routine blood work. ...Read more
ESR is a marker of: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a marker of inflammation, thus high inflammatory processes cause ESR to be higher. Infections, cancers, uncontrolled rheumatologic diseases, and endovascular inflammation(i.e. Arteritis) are examples. Thus, elevated ESR values suggest inflammatory conditions which should be sought and treated. Esr is not a complication, but a marker! Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Inflammation if goin: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a very old test that roughly measures the amount of inflammatory proteins in the blood. These proteins can be due to a rheumatic disease, inflammatory disease or infectious disease. Most important is the context in which it occurs and why the test was ordered in the first place. ...Read more
Means nothing alone: The ESR is often done wrong anyway -- our lab once had all-high sed rates because of a jackhammer operator across the street -- and in the absence of symptoms / signs of possible undiagnosed disease is of no value. The same is true of most other labs. If your physicain is not worried, you shouldn't be either. ...Read more
