Hi. ESR or Erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a blood parameter that is raised in any sort of inflammation like fever , infection, anything. There is nothing to be done. Do not worry. Your own immune system will take it down. Visit a clinician and get the cause treated. ESR will come down on its own. Have a nice day.

doctor1 MD

Hi. ESR or Erythro Sedimentation Rate is not specific to any one disease. It only indicates chronic infection or inflammation or an autoimmine disease. It is elevated in many diseases such as hypothyroidism, Diabetes, SLE, RA, Sarcoidosis, COPD, etc. An ESR of 90 suggests a moderate elevation.
