Patient discussion about mm

Q. my mm/hr is 73 I know that normal is 20 what do i do? I had blood work and my mm/hr is high what must be the reason for this ?

A. Well, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (that can you read more about it in wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erythrocyte_sedimentation_rate) isn't a very specific test: it may be elevated in many situations, both more and less significant. It may be elevated in pregnancy, people with overweight and it's influenced by other things in your blood.

IMHO, the most important thing is whether you have other complaints or abnormal tests. If you don't have any other problem than these results may mean nothing. However, you should check with your doctor about the other tests.

Take care,
