Thanks for this question Rosalind
At your age, this is not really a dramatic finding.
I see a slightly elevated sed rate at your age all the time outside of any real disease
I am really not concerned about it.
It can sometimes be a sign of autoimmune disease or non specific inflammation but most times it is normal
are you otherwise healthy?
