Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

Which is it when my neutrophils are high, sed rate is low and wbc are elevated?

Insufficient info

Eosinophil
The information you provided is not sufficient to make a diagnosis. 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. It would require additional history, physical examination and may be more tests to arrive at a diagnosis.

Dr. AROLD AUGUSTIN answered:

Crp was elevated now normal and sed rate is a little high. What is the difference?

Inflammation

Esr
Both ESR and CRP reflect an inflammatory state. They need to be interpreted in the context of the clinical picture. At any rate, without knowing too much about you, I can say that it is a very good sign that your ESR normalized. A slight elevation of the sedimentation rate is nonspecific and may be meaningless.

What is implication homogeneous ANA 1:320, compliment 4 high 44, sed rate and C-reactive protein often elevated and vitamin d low?

Several causes

The Vitamin D is probably a seperate problem and should be treated by a supplement. The other lab you reported can be a sign of an autoimmune disease as well as many other diseases. You should discuss the cause with your doctor.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

crp was high now normal. sed rate elevated. ana+w/speck pattern. thyroid ok. metabilic and cbc and urine ok. little low vitamin d... any idea??

Labs mean little

Antithyroid_medication
CRP and sed rate vary greatly for no obvious reason frmo day to day. A majority of Americans run a low vitamin D due to our diets & habits. My one concern is if the ANA is at a high-titer, which warns of lupus or a variety of other possibilities, but labs mean nothing apart from the history and physical exam.

Dr. Liawaty Ho answered:

have had mri/ ct scan nothing suspicious. High crp Elevated sed rate . Ana + w/speckled pattern. Could this be cancer? Do have middle back pain.

Need further eval

Back_pain
you will need more evaluation. a complete autoimmune panel should be done at least. I don't know your symptoms, but from your limited information, you do have some inflammation process going on in your body and there is a possibility that this may be an autoimmune process. discuss further with your doctor.

Elevated sed rate caused by obesity?

No

Obesity
Elevated ESR - sed rate is caused by inflammation. Although inflammation can make it difficult to lose weight, obesity doesn't by itself cause an elevated sed rate.

Dr. Meng K. Syn answered:

Can periodontal infection cause elevated sed rate?

YES

Teeth_brushing
There are several peer review studies out that show a direct correlation between severity of periodontal disease and SED rate. SED is a pretty non specific indicator of a disease process and many inflammatory processes in the body effect SED. There also have been studies that have shown that SED rate decreased with extraction of abscessed teeth. See your dentist to asses your oral health.

Does a febrile illness cause elevated cpk level and sed rate?

It should not

Fever-adult
Febrile illnesses by themselves should not elevate CPK and usually will not elevate a sed rate( at least not signifcantly). Certainly certain diseases and illnesses can but usually not with the common viruses etc.
