Esr Blood Lab Test
My ESR was 22, i'm getting a little worried. I had bacterial vagonisis at the time of test. Should i be concerned? All other labs normal.
Not with this,,,: Esr typically is associated with joint diseases like lupus and/or other inflammatory diseases like temporal arteritis, which occurs in a person'a mid 40s. It's also higher in women and although it's elevated, it's not too high and has practically nothing to do with your bacterial vaginitis which is more of an infectious issue and hopefully you've been treated. If not, see your dr.. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If ESR is not accurate, then what lab test should I need for monitoring my inflammation in the colon?
How you feel: Take it from this pathologist -- the way you feel is probably a better guide than any lab. The labs done for inflammatory bowel disease are proliferating and folks still argue about them. An occasional CBC will pick up early anemia, and chemical profile alert may alert with a low Albumin or low serum iron / high tibc. But no lab will ever take the place of "how do you feel?" stay pro-active! ...Read more
My mother is 45 years old and she has pain in her knees and legs. and lab test redults showed that uric acid is 5.6 and ESR is 83 per first hour. I m?
I would get your: mother checked out right away. Serum uric acid is never really helpful. The differential diagnosis for bilateral knees pain are broad, gout, pseudogout, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, etc. Less common will be septic joint arthritis, lyme, malignancy, etc. History and physical exam and joint tap are all essential. Hard to draw any conclusion without those. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My recent blood test showed , ESR and RDW levels slightly high, and hematocrit level decreased slightly. Should i be worried?
Lab data: Difficult to comment on lab results without clinical correlation, but you are slightly anemic and if this is iron deficient anemia it may be because of bleeding during your period and may require iron supplementation. The increased ESR and CRP are probably of no consequence. Get an answer to why your hemoglobin is low. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am facing the problem of high esr, my current ESR is 55 in my last blood test report and I have cough in lungs in xray report?
Ignore it: The ESR / sed rate is an easy lab test to do wrong in the first place, and modest elevations mean nothing. I'd be more concerned about your cough and your medications. "treat the person, not the numbers." i'm glad you're proactive and hope you get this solved soon. Best wishes. ...Read more
Hi I am 19 years old i just done my blood test the result is the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (esr) is high its on 60 which medican I do need ?
Unclear: Just because a lab test is abnormal, it doesn't mean you need a medication. A sed rate is not very specific and it would be unlikely to have any condition diagnosed solely on this test. ...Read more
I am a 51yr old male. In my blood test , i found my ESR value 16mm/hr.I have severe joint pain also.What does this indicate?
Hard to say: A sed rate is an indication of systemic inflammation. Whether a sed rate of 16 is abnormal is based upon the normal rnage, which can vary by the lab that did the test. Assuming a normal range up to 10 , a 16 is only a minimal elevation and is not terribly significant. Usually, a detailed history, exam, and further testing will determine the cause, thank you for the question. ...Read more
Can exercising before blood test affect results? Fbc, lymphocyte flow studies, esr, crp, LFT, lipase, amylase? Can exercise before test make feel ill?
Exercise: As a boon to long term health, exercise has value. But normal ranges for almost all lab tests are established on resting individuals. Some values are known to go up (such as some liver functions) while others may vary depending on the intensity and degree of dehydration. Abnormals should be treated cautiously and perhaps repeated without the prior activity. ...Read more
