Hi,
If her ESR is 50 she further require investigations like complete blood check,X ray chest,urine check up and sonography of abdomen.
So consult physician and gynacologist to conclude the diagnosis and treatment.

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Increased ESR is a sign of active infection or inflammation going on in our body.Normal ESR is upto 20 but even anaemia can cause slightly raised ESR.IF your sister has lost weight and has abdominal pain then you need to get her investigated to find the cause .It can be a gastritis;infection of stomach if she has loose motions associated with pain;even it can be TB in abdomen.Kindly get further examined by a doctor and investigated as the ESR is not diagnostic in your sister's case.Please consult a doctor for further advise and treatment.
Thanks
