Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The CRP reading is wrongly mentioned. The average value is 3mg/litre.

ESR you have mentioned is raised this can be seen in chronic illnesses like infections or anemia.

Since hemoglobin is very low, ESR raised could be secondary to the same. I suggest you to take her to the ER as soon as possible and get blood transfused as she is very anemic. The deficiency of hemoglobin could be due to recent Dand C she had or could be nutritional.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Regards,

What do you mean by "ER"?

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

ER means the Emergency room or the casualty in an hospital. Since her hemoglobin is very low, she may be needing blood transfusion.

Hope, this is clear.
