This value is normal in your case.

Detailed Answer:
Hi .

I understand your concern.

ESR stands for erythrocyte sedimentation rate- sedimentation rate test will be reported in the distance in millimeters (mm) red blood cells have descended in one hour (hr). It is a common hematology test, and is a non-specific measure of inflammation

This value is normal up to 22 in men and up to 29 in women.

This is a normal value in your case.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
