SED RATE

Sed Rate

Pat Writes:
Sed Rate stands for erythrocyte sedimentation rate which is a marker of inflammation in the body.

Normal Values:
Men: up to 15mm/hr
Women: up to 20mm/hr
Kids: up t0 10mm/hr
Seniors: up to 30mm.hr

A normal reading suggests the is no inflammation while an elevated result indicates that there is some type of inflammation going on somewhere in the body.

Another marker of inflammation is C-Reactive Protein.
C-reactive protein is a special type of protein produced by the liver that is only present during episodes of acute inflammation.

Normal Values Normally there is no CRP in the blood serum.
