What Happens If Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate Is High 65
Is the rate at which red blood cells sediment in a period of 1 hour. It is non-specific measure of inflammation. It is performed by placing anticoagulated blood sample in an upright tube (westergren tube) then measuring the rate at which red blood cells fall (in mm per hour). It is useful in diagnosis of some diseases, such as autoimmune diseases, for assessment of severity of ...Read more
What happens if ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate)is 80mm/hr in female what kind of disease she is suffering from.?
Complement C4/ESR: complement C4 and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate are usually high in conditions which cause acute or chronic inflammation. These are often measured in autoimmune diseases and rheumatoid arthritis, but they can be elevated in many other conditions, including cancer and heart attacks. The results need to be interpreted by your physician. Good luck. ...Read more
Need workup: Sed rate is never worth a workup unless there's symptoms / signs. High RBC's -- WAY above the top of the reference range -- suggests thal minor if hemoglobin / hematocrit are okay / lowish, one of the polycythemias if they are also high. These in turn can be due to anything from p vera rubra to sleep apnea to a high-affinity hemoglobin to COPD to a right-to-left heart shunt. ...Read more
Paraproteinemia: The Sed Rate often goes up if there is inflammation somewhere in the body but it can also go up if lymphocytes are producing excessive protein (called immunoglobulin) . This is called a paraproteinemia. This might represent a blood disorder. I suggest you chat with your Doctor to see if this is a old vs a new finding. If new, then your doctor may want you to see a hematologist to clarify. ...Read more

What does it mean for a kid if WBC and RBC count is normal while differential is not ( neutrophils low, monocytes a bit high, eosinophils high ) ?
Inflammation: Elevated sed rate usually indicates inflammation that may be due to infection or other causes, such as autoimmunity. Elevated sed rate and positive autoantibody (ana, i presume) warrant further investigation to diagnose or exclude an autoimmune disorder like rheumatoid arthritis, sle or the like. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Inflammation : 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. ...Read more
What do these blood tests indicate?
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and c-reactive protein ESR is 21 and the c-reactive is 0.6
Inflammation: 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, If the result of your test was 6.9mg/L, it suggests the presence of inflammation and risk of heart disease.

My ANA is positive speckled 1:640 it was 1:160 in july. Sed rate is elevated. What does that mean for the ana? How bad is that?
Non-specific: In the absence of symptomatic expression of disease, titer and pattern of the ANA test, with the minimally (if at all) elevated ESR would suggest only that there is some non-specific source of inflammation and this could be nearly anything. Best thing to do is to have an astute pcp or a rheumatologist see you and order the appropriate diagnostic tests if they feel they are clinically warranted. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
