What does it mean if ESR is 100?


ESR stands for erythrocyte sedimentation rate, which is a test that measures how quickly red blood cells settle to the bottom of a test tube in a given amount of time. A value of 100 mm/hour for ESR is considered to be very high and may indicate the presence of an inflammatory or infectious condition in the body.

However, it’s important to note that ESR is a non-specific test, meaning that it doesn’t diagnose a specific disease but rather indicates the presence of inflammation in the body. Further diagnostic tests may be necessary to determine the underlying cause of the high ESR. It’s important to consult a healthcare provider for an accurate interpretation of test results and proper management of any underlying conditions.
