erythrocyte sedimentation rate 35mm/h what does that mean

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

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?

Hi,I have just checked my card details and I am shocked to see £36.00 taken out instead of your £24.00 as on your web site, not good.

I have nothing to do with that Rosalind.

I just work independently for the site
