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

What is ESR in blood?

What is ESR in blood?

Sed rate: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, how fast red cells sink in plasma, was known to hippocrates. If high, it suggests inflammation in the body, but it is not sensitive, not specific, and fraught with pitfalls in its performance in the laboratory today. It is a helpful adjunct in the workup of illness. ...Read more

What is the exact cause of rising ESR count in blood?

What is the exact cause of rising ESR count in blood?

Inflammation: The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a nonspecific measure of inflammatory proteins in the blood causing the settling of erythrocytes slower. It also increases with age. It has to be done in view of something specific being followed or else an explanation may be missed. It follows the waxing and waning of diseases being followed as a response to treatments. ...Read more

What happens if ESR in blood is 41 what is the symptom?

What happens if ESR in blood is 41 what is the symptom?

I'm not worried: The ESR is one of the easiest lab tests to do wrong. Even a jackhammer operating in the lab parking lot will raise it. A young person with a value of 41 is slightly high but the person can be just fine; it is of little concern and if the person feels well, I don't consider it worth pursuing. ...Read more

Had two high ESR blood tests no. 38 what does this mean?

Likely normal: Esr - or erythrocyte sedimentation rate - is a rought determination of overall inflammation (reflected by the number of proteins in the serum). The higher the number, the longer it takes for a rbc to settle, the higher your "inflammation" is. As a rule of thumb, though, an individual's ESR should roughly equal his or her age. Hence, if you are 63, ESR would need to be >63 to be concerning. ...Read more

What happens if ESR in blood is 41 what are the causes behind this?

Just above normal: An elevated ESR is an indication of inflammation some where in the body. The inflammation may be due to infection or non-infecious causes such as arthritis, lupus, colitis etc. See this site for more info.

My ESR in blood test is high. How to get it back to normal.

Nonspecific finding: An elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a very nonspecific marker of inflammation. There are many not very serious causes of elevation - it is often used to rule out conditions that cause it to go up, but if it is elevated and there is nothing else wrong, then watchful waiting is the usual course. You should discuss what might be causing it to be elevated with your doctor. ...Read more

My ESR value is 51 and im experiencing lots of body pain. I did 3 blood test and the ESR ranges at 62. 48. 51...What does this suggest?

ESR: This is a non-specific indicator of infection. The things that elevated the rate at which red blood cells will sediment are an increase in globulins (due to tumors or infection or other), and increase in fibrinogen, a substance released from the liver under stimulation by fibrin degradation products. The reasons for you to have high esrs must be assessed by a clinician in context with illness. ...Read more

I had low ANCA, level and often above normal ESR, and abnormal ig3 levels in blood, pls can you advice of possible causes espec for low IG3?, thanks

How low?: Picture is incomplete, we don't treat lab results, rather patients. You need to be evaluated as a whole, low IgG3, an IgG subtype, can be meaningless, and many people are asymptomatic. The test can be repeated to verify the result in context of your whole clinical picture, otherwise disregard it. Your doctor/the doctor who ordered the test, would make such call / refer you, or order more tests ...Read more

Lab data: The mcv, MCH and MCHC are measurements of the size and hemoglobin content of red blood cells. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a very non-specific measure of the presence of inflammation. None of these values has any meaning absent their being taken in context of the medical condition of the patient. ...Read more

In blood test report shows high polymorphs and high esr. Could you please tell me the diagnosis?

In blood test report shows high polymorphs and high esr. Could you please tell me the diagnosis?

More tests needed,,,: Your high polymorphs and ESR do indicate that something is going on, however, without more tests, it's unclear what it is. It can be an infection like pneumonia or an abscess, or it can be a joint disease like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis or something else. It would be best to see your doctor and get a thorough exam with a full battery of blood tests before a diagnosis can be made. Good luck. ...Read more

Are there any other tests to confirm if one has an infection other then checking ESR level in blood thanks?

Sedimentation rate: Esr is a non-specific indicator suggesting the presence of inflammation. Factors increasing ESR are increased levels of gamma-globulin and fibrinogen. The latter is made by the liver and released in response to fragments of that material that are released when it breaks down in the bloodstream. It is not always due to infection, but if infection is being followed it can be a valuable indicator. ...Read more
