What does an ESR test result of 34 mean?
May indicate some inflammation/infection !
Hi! thanks for your health query!
ESR value of 34 (Higher than normal value 20-22) by Westergren method is something that could indicate: fever, infections, chronic inflammation, liver infection, kidney diseases, arthritis, bone/skin/lung diseases, cancer,
However, exercises, menstruation, pregnancy, high protein diet, anemia etc may also lead to high ESR.
As such it has no specificity to any disease but may indicate some inflammation/infection anywhere in our body!
