Brief Answer:
Can you upload the entire report?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for addressing your query to us.

I am so sorry to hear about these worrisome laboratory findings and all the inconveniences this must have caused you. I do promise to follow through on this to help in looking for answers and providing solutions.

An ESR of 32 is clearly not normal. This might indicate a systemic inflammatory process or an autoimmune disease. However, I need to look at the entire laboratory result sheets. I will need to look at the method used, reference values for the laboratory and other findings that were reported as well. This will be very helpful to me.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.
