Brief Answer:
Elevated ESR is seen in diabetics.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
ESR is commonly elevated in infection,inflammation etc.
Studies show that in diabetics,ESR is elevated even in the absence of infection.
So,diabetes can be the cause in your case.
ESR of 31 is of not much significance.
Do not worry.
Check for any infection/inflammation.
Wish you good health
