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

For 12 months, my CRP & ESR levels have been elevated by 2-3 times the normal range. Ana is also detectable. What can I do to lower inflammation?

For 12 months, my CRP & ESR levels have been elevated by 2-3 times the normal range. Ana is also detectable. What can I do to lower inflammation?

You need: You need to determine is causing the inflammation. If for example you smoke, we know that that can elevated a crp. If you overweight, that can cause a elevated crp. If you are pregnant, both can be elevated. Without knowing more of your history it is difficult to comment on what exactly to do. See your doctor to discuss further. ...Read more

What causes a high number/percentage of MID cells in CBC when the overall WBC is in the normal range? ESR is also high (50mm/hr) and slight anaemia.

What causes a high number/percentage of MID cells in CBC when the overall WBC is in the normal range? ESR is also high (50mm/hr) and slight anaemia.

Increase in monocyte: Monocytes are increased frequently after a viral infection or after some bone marrow insult--again usually viral, but can be associated with exposures or other type of illness. The elevated sed rate represents some sort of inflammatory response to something--the slight anemia requires more information.
Please visit with your physician to understand what is going on with you medically. ...Read more

Resubmit: I am not sure I fully understand the question. It seems like the person in reference is a diabetic, has mild renal failure, ? Kidney stones vs gallstones, and may be having some type of reaction because of high eosinophils. Please resubmit ...Read more

In my recent hematology Report ESR (WG) Count 90 where as range given was 1-20. Please advise is it normal in pregnancy or I need to consult Doctor?

Ignore it: The sed rate is prone to technical pitfalls, is famously nonspecific, and if you feel well otherwise and the pregnancy is progressing well, don't worry about it. ...Read more

Rheumatoid factor just out of range at 20.2. Normal esr, ana. Bilateral hip pain, chest, and roaming pains in other joints, never swelling. Is it ra?

Rheumatoid factor just out of range at 20.2. Normal esr, ana. Bilateral hip pain, chest, and roaming pains in other joints, never swelling. Is it ra?

Unlikely: Rheumatoid arthritis is diagnosed based on a number of criteria. Each criteria has a point value. You must have 6 points to be diagnosed. What you described would be 2 points. This isn't enough for rheumatoid arthritis (ra). You should still see a doctor familiar with RA to be sure. The most important part if the diagnosis is the feel of the joints not the lab. ...Read more

Pr3 at 3.8 but anca-c normal. Esr 80 hs crp 8.5 crp 0.4 with anemia, ckd, chf. Is pr3 related to neuropathy vasculitis? Reference ranges vary 4 pr3?

Pr3 at 3.8 but anca-c normal. Esr 80 hs crp 8.5 crp 0.4 with anemia, ckd, chf. Is pr3 related to neuropathy vasculitis? Reference ranges vary 4 pr3?

Rule out Wegener's: Lab error may happen when testing for vasculitis. If there's a lesion in the nose / ear / eye / lung / kidney that's suspicious for anca-c disease / "granulomatous polyangiitis" then biopsy is indicated; trust this over the labs. Dr. Wegener was a German in WWII but did not take part in crimes against humankind and the knowledge he gave the world has saved many lives. Hope this gets sorted out. ...Read more

What does a level 9 esr-westergren mean? From my understanding it's normal

What does a level 9 esr-westergren mean? From my understanding it's normal

Yup, normal: Westergren is the standard method to measure the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR, "sed rate"). At your age (women under 50) anything under 20 mm/hr is normal. Your level of 9 mm/hr suggests you have no ongoing body-wide inflammation. ...Read more

Esr (westergren) 29mm/1st hr. I m female 25.I am perfectly normal no symptoms of any disease. What could be the cause of high esr? Shud I b worried?

ESR: This is a totally non-specific measure of possible inflammation but in the absence of any symptoms my advice is to ignore the result and go on doing what you were before the test was run. Without a clinical indication it has no meaning. Good luck. ...Read more

My ESR count is 40 is this normal?

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

ESR: This is a very non-specific measure of inflammation and if the cause of the initial elevation has been corrected (either spontaneously or through therapy) the values will return to normal. ...Read more

What does having normal ESR test results mean?

Nothing really: It's neither sensitive nor specific, but is one additional piece of information for certain workups. Even as a test for polymyalgia rheumatica, it's probably been superseded by the C-reactive protein. ...Read more

My ESR is 103mm what does this mean and is this normal?

Nothing by itself: It may be a lab error. Or it may be a tipoff that you have actual subtle disease. If the history and physical exam aren't helpful, then forget about it. The sed rate (ESR) is a poor tool to use for a fishing expedition, but it's especially helpful in picking up those musculoskeletal conditions that may be inflammatory (lupus, polymyalgia rheumatica, others). ...Read more

Can you tell me about normal ESR test results mean which?

No inflammation: ESR, or erythrocyte sedimentation rate, is a measure of inflammation and is commonly ordered with a C-Reactive protein. A normal ESR is usually less than 15-20, but can depend on the lab which performed the test. If you have a normal ESR, you are not likely to have an inflammatory process. The ESR is not a test for a specific problem, so it would be best to know why the test was ordered. ...Read more

Iam 63 yrs female my ESR 75mm/hr normal (0-15) what it means?

Iam 63 yrs female my ESR 75mm/hr normal (0-15) what it means?

Not specific: ESR stands for erythrocyte sedimentation rate. It is a non-specific marker for inflammation. It can be elevated due to infection, immune reaction or sometimes in more serious problems like cancer. You need to work with your doctor to do more testing to find the cause of this increase in inflammation. ...Read more

My ESR levels came 19 which is above normal level what I have to do?

Lab data: The ESR is a completely non-specific measure of inflammation. Without knowing anything else it is meaningless. You need clinical correlation. If you have had removal of a breast lump that is sufficient to raise your ESR slightly. ...Read more

Is a ESR rate of 39mm/hr normal and is it a sighn of inflammation?

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

My mothere has an ESR of 50. Which is high and she is diabetic and has normal hb. So what are the possible causes of this high value and any test?

Non specific test: Esr is a non-specific marker for inflamation. Her doc should evaluate her for acute or chronic illness in addition to diabetes. It is elevated in diabetes if not in good control. Hbg a1c should be 6.5 or less. If not she needs evaluation for improved control. ...Read more

My haematology blood analysis and MCH is 24 less to normal (27-32), ESR (westergren 1hr) is 30 high to normal (0-12), monocytes 0.1, please explain, ?

My haematology blood analysis and MCH is 24 less to normal (27-32), ESR (westergren 1hr) is 30 high to normal (0-12), monocytes 0.1, please explain, ?

Big picture: Labs mean nothing in isolation, and this is insufficient information. I'd ignore the monocytes if the absolute granulocytes and lymphocytes are near the reference range. You need to understand that the reference range is not the "healthy range" and several % of healthy folks are outside range on either side. With low mch, consider a check for subtle iron deficiency or thal minor. ...Read more
