High creatinine: At your age, your elevated serum creatinine (c) is due to chronic kidney disease (ckd). It could be caused by your high bp. See a nephrologist for a 24-hour urine collection for a c clearance and protein. It will give you an exact amount of your kidney function. You will also need a renal ultrasound and some blood work. Once these data are in, a more informed idea can be made about your kidneys. ...Read more

What makes U feel MM: That's an unusual question to ask if you have multiple myeloma. Is that something your pcp has discussed with your? It's not a normal finding that one looks for when a person can't go from sitting to standing easily. There are other more common factors that can do this that needs to be explored further, since you have a diabetic background. Have your doctor do an exam to determine the cause. ...Read more

I have lupus -but my doctor never checks me urine ;but she does a cbc, cmp, esr, complements, cpk, bun, and creatinine. Should i be concerned w/ no ua?

I have lupus -but my doctor never checks me urine ;but she does a cbc, cmp, esr, complements, cpk, bun, and creatinine. Should i be concerned w/ no ua?

Urine in lupus: Lupus is known to affect the kidneys, however, not in every patient. If there is a concern that your kidneys are affected, you doc should check your urine. It sounds she checks your kidney function by way of creatinine, so she monitors kidney function already. If you have any symptoms related to your kidneys — frequency, urgency, bloody/cloudy urine you need to bring them up to your doc. ...Read more

My ESR level is too much high. How can I lower it?

My ESR level is too much high. How can I lower it?

Stop worrying: The sed rate means absolutely nothing in isolation and is often done wrong in the first place. It's a single piece of information that is only of moderate usefulness in a few unusual clinical situations. I'm a lab specialist and my best advice to is to stop worrying about labs like this, get into a fitness-focused lifestyle, and be thankful for good health. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my ESR level is too much high?

Sedimentation rate: ESR=erythrocyte sedimentation rate. This is a very non-specific lab test that has some degree of correlation with inflammatory processes that alter the inter-cellular reactivity between red cells in the blood. If markedly elevated then careful evaluation for the causes should be sought. ...Read more

Is pet radiography advisable for high ESR level?

Not usually: Pet scans are special imaging tests to localize spots of high metabolic activity, such as with metastatic cancer. High ESR can result from many diseases, and cancer isn't that high on the list. It would be a long jump from ESR to pet scan, unless there was a lot of other data to suggest a use for the pet scan. ...Read more

Newly asthmatic and had another ESR test which show very high again within 4 weeks since the last test which was back to normal levels will this mean I need to be tested every few months to check?

Workup: I would suggest screening and considering other diagnoses which can cause inflammation. If you have other symptoms, please let your physician know. A chest radiograph, CBC, differential and platelets, testing for autoimmune disease may also be useful. ...Read more

My ESR and CRP levels are high. Is it due to the fibromyalgia that I have?

Inflammation: Esr and CRP levels indicate inflammation. It could be a connective tissue ailment other than fibromyalgia. Also, it could be from teeth and gum disease (periodontal infection) and sinusitis which require treatment. Try a healthy diet with many colorful fruit and vegetables, whole grain, non-fat dairy and fish while avoiding meat and concentrated sweets. This along with aerobic exercise helps. ...Read more

What should I do if I have elevated ESR and cholestrol levels?

Depends: It's rare that a doc can recommend meds for an asymptomatic patient in good conscience, but dpeending on your other conditions and your overall heart risk, you may be a candidate for a cholesterol med like Lipitor (atorvastatin) or Crestor (statins) which decreases both the cholesterol level itself and the marker of inflammation (the esr). Nothing's free, financially or otherwise so work with your doc to choose. ...Read more

Your sed rate is in: The normal range for women: up to 20. Even if it were mildly elevated, pregnancy can cause that. Best wishes for a happy and healthy baby. ...Read more

My ESR level is elevated. What complications can arise from this problem?

Ignore it: As a pathologist, you have my assurance that the ESR / erythrocyte sedimentation means nothing at all in isolation. It's hard to do correctly, a slight elevation really never means a thing, and it's only of value as part of the big picture in diagnosing or following diseases in the lupus / rheumatism family. ...Read more

I have elevated ESR. Mine is 25 mm/hr (the max. level here is up to 10mm/hr). Should I worried?

ESR: The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), is the rate that red blood cells drop to the bottom of a small glass tube and is a non-specific indicator of inflammation. A wide variety of conditions can cause it to be elevated including infections such as TB. ...Read more

Ca not a test for : Myeloma. Your calcium is normal but that does not say anything about myeloma. You are young to have myeloma, but if you have concerns your doctor can order blood tests. See this site for more info.

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 more

Had blood test for ESR and CRP again 3rd one and it's gone back very high again would this need testing again to see if levels dropped or not?

Had blood test for ESR and CRP again 3rd one and it's gone back very high again would this need testing again to see if levels dropped or not?

?diagnosis: Why are you having these tests for inflammation in your body? If you are being treated for a disease like polymyagia rheumatica, serial sed rates are used to judge treatment efficacy and guide the tapering of medication when the inflammation is under control. Your physician is best qualified to advise you as he/she has all the pertinent information on your case. ...Read more

Did ESR test and it was very high from the normal level... A test was done because of my constant severe pain in both legs... What does it mean?

Did ESR test and it was very high from the normal level... A test was done because of my constant severe pain in both legs... What does it mean?

Nonspecific: The ESR or erythrocyte sedimentation rate is the rate at which red blood cells sink to the bottom of the tube given in mm/hr. It is a non-specific measure of inflammation that has been around since 1897. The ESR tends to rise with age and is higher in women and when anemia is present. There are many reasons for an elevated esr, so the test is not useful for indicating a specific diagnosis. ...Read more

An old woman with very low f. T4=.2 and high level of tsh>100 and tpo = 471 and ldh = 1121 and ESR = 50 what is the most likely cause for that?

An old woman with very low f. T4=.2 and high level of tsh>100 and tpo = 471 and ldh = 1121 and ESR = 50 what is the most likely cause for that?

Hypothyroidism: Sed rate is not the key here. She probably has autoimmune thyroiditis / hashimoto's because of anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies. She needs to be treated for her hypothyroidism or it will be a disaster. The high ldh might be due to concurrent pernicious anemia, folate (folic acid) deficiency, or any of a few hundred other possibilities. The key is as usual the history and physical exam. ...Read more

Vasculitis, where? : Vasculitis isn't a generic diagnosis, it needs specification and relation to an organ/system, and it doesn't look you have the condition. Confer with your primary doctor, who may refer you to a rheumatologist or an allergist/immunologist if you have access to one, otherwise relax, trust your doctor and follow his/her recommendations, wish you wellness ...Read more

POT and Minerals: A twenties female taking Aldactone (spironolactone) and who has dizziness needs blood mineral and thyroid tests. If these are normal a mild case of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (pots) becomes of concern. I have seen pots problem in women with joint hypermobility syndrome (jhs), and generalized musculoskeletal deconditioning seems etiologic. See an osteopath. ...Read more
