What Is Considered To Be A Very High Sedimentation Rate
Depends: The sedimentation rate can be elevated for a number of causes. The most common cause is inflammation. The test is most valuable when it is done in looking for a certain condition. It has far less value as a "screening test." I have seen a number of normal individuals with an elevated sed rate and no cause was ever found. However, an elevated sed rate is not common without a cause. ...Read more

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
Laboratory Results: This depends on what your physician is treating you for. These are not specific to anyone diagnosis. The MCHC and RDW are describing your red cell size. The monocytes are one type of cell you have floating in your bloodstream. The high sedimentation rate is seen in various types of inflammation. You physician will explain these as he or she proceeds to diagnose you and treat you ...Read more
What isthe erythrocyte sedimentation rate (esr) is why is it and what happened with this is can't i pregnat cuz of this ? Its on high rate what i do
Classic lab test: The erythrocyte sedimentation rate ("sed rate") is a very old blood test of limited value and often subject to lab error. It's often up in some of the inflammatory diseases; 41 is only a mild elevation. This is not by itself the cause of your infertility, whether or not the cause itself is known. Request a full explanation from your personal physician, and good luck in becoming a mother. ...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
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
My white blood count is 13 and my sedimentation rate us 25 is there a need for concern white blood count has been high a year absolute neutrophil high?
Hard to say: A WBC of 13,000 may indicate an acute infection, but the fact that it's been present for a year speaks against it being due to infection. Sed rate is a non specific test and is not diagnostic of anything. It would be worthwhile to review any medications you are taking that might elevate your WBC. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does it mean to have low hemoglobin, hematocrit, mch, mchc, and high platelet count , and sedimentation rate?
ESR and cRP in MS. : Being multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory condition, it would not be unreasonable to think that the ESR and CRP could be elevated when the condition is active. That being said, ESR and CRP are very nonspecific markers and in and of themselves should not be used diagnostically in this context. ...Read more

Not rheumatoid: This may not be rheumatoid arthritis. Other medical causes can be the reason. We need more information. Your physician can clarify this ...Read more
I realise that these markers aren't specific but wouldn't most advanced cancers cause elevated Sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein?
No: Nice to be able to help once again, Matt. The sed rate and especially the C-reactive protein result from the liver pumping out extra large amounts of a couple of particular proteins that are stimulated by very particular things that are often produced in inflammation and seldom in pure neoplasia. Forget most (not all) of what you've read about "immune response to cancer" as myth. Best wishes. ...Read more
Crp and sedimentation rate are both independant indicators of inflammation, do we know to what problems continuous and elevated sr(2xmax) only lead ?
Many causes Hi SR: The sedimentation rate (sed rate) blood test measures how quickly red blood cells (erythrocytes) settle in a test tube in one hour. The more red cells that fall to the bottom of the test tube in one hour, the higher the sed rate. When inflammation is present in the body, certain proteins cause red blood cells to stick together and fall more quickly than normal to the bottom of the tube. These pro. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have an elevated sedimentation rate, elevated white blood cell count, elevated absolute neutrophils, elevated absolute lymphocytes, & low iron level?
How do you FEEL?: If the white cell values are not extremely out of range, and all are well formed, I would not worry about them. Iron is more worrisome as even without anemia, low values can war of poor nutrition or bleeding from an uncertain or tumor. Nobody here can really tell you much more than that we are glad you are amtaking an active role in understanding your health. ...Read more
Inflammation: ESR or erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a reflection of inflammation in the body. It is not a very specific test. It can be elevated in the setting of an infection, certain cancers, and many autoimmune/rheumatologic conditions. The last category includes conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis and lupus. Normal ESR is no higher than age/ 2 for men or age/ 2 plus 10 for women. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
