What does this test measure?

An ESR measures the rate red blood cells fall in a tall, thin tube. Normally, red blood cells fall slowly and leave little clear plasma within the tube. Increased levels of some proteins, such as fibrinogen or immunoglobulins, which are both increased in inflammation, cause the red blood cells to fall quicker, which increases the ESR result.

What can I test?

Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR)

ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate) is a non-specific inflammation marker. It measures the rate at which red blood cells fall to the bottom of a tube. The blood cells fall quicker during inflammation, as there are more proteins in the blood, caused by the inflammation. It is said to be nonspecific because increases do not indicate exactly where the inflammation in your body is, or what is causing it, and also because it can be affected by other conditions other than inflammation.
