What is it for ?
This test determines if you have inflammation & diagnoses diseases that cause inflammation.
Also known as: Sed Rate, ESR, Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate
Package includes following parameters
Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) (1)
Doctors advise analysing the blood for a range of markers to detect inflammation in the body. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is one such measure. It is a blood test that can detect any inflammatory activity in the body. It is not a single conclusive test to determine the site or cause of the inflammation. Still, it can aid in diagnosing and monitoring inflammation throughout the body.
The test is also known as sedimentation test or sed rate test, because it examines how quickly the RBC settles to the bottom of a collection tube.
The test is carried out for a period of time, with the blood sample being measured over an hour or so.
When the body is inflamed, it has a wide range of detrimental impacts on several functions and organs. The inflammatory process in the body has a unique effect on red blood cells or erythrocytes. RBC clumping can occur as a result of inflammation.
RBC does not usually sink to the bottom quickly. When they cluster together in a typical situation, the sedimentation rate rises. In the case of acute and chronic inflammation, RBCs may have more protein, which may cause them to settle faster towards the bottom of the tube. The higher the degree of inflammation, the faster the RBC falls to the bottom.
There are two approaches for calculating the actual erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
A person needs a test in case they display symptoms of underlying infection in the body like:
Because the erythrocyte sedimentation test cannot diagnose a problem on its own, it is usually combined with a complete blood haemogram and a CRP test, to provide a complete picture of the body’s inflammatory reactions.
Doctors typically prescribe ESR blood testing to discover and diagnose unexplained symptoms, such as fever, arthritis or a muscular issue. An ESR test can frequently aid in the confirmation of a diagnosis of certain diseases, including:
Many autoimmune disorders can cause inflammation in the body. In such circumstances, the test serves as a diagnostic tool.
Once the disease has been diagnosed, a standard ESR test can be included in the usual process to see whether or not the treatment offered is effective or helpful. Understanding the sedimentation rate test also aids in determining the severity of the underlying inflammation and how to properly monitor the therapy. A low sedimentation rate may suggest that the treatment is effective.
An erythrocyte sedimentation rate test is a painless and straightforward technique. Our skilled phlebotomists will take care of everything after you arrange a test with us at the Redcliffe Labs. As it is a blood test, the first step involves collecting blood samples from an upper arm vein.
The sample is adequately stored before being sent to the lab for testing. It is placed in a sedimentation tube, which remains for an hour. The test will help determine the pace at which the RBC sinks to the bottom of the tube. The test also determines how many RBCs sink. Because inflammation can cause RBCs to clump together and the presence of aberrant proteins, both of these factors can accelerate sedimentation.

The ESR blood test price is often low, and the testing facility and its services mainly determine it. The ESR test price can increase due to the diagnostic facility’s advanced labs, accreditations and many other services. An FDA-approved, high-tech laboratory with a reputation for providing accurate results, will have a substantially higher cost, but you will be assured of quality. The ESR test cost at Redcliffe is INR 117. While booking your test, you can avail of several discounts on our website and save money.

ESR test results are frequently expressed in millimetres per hour (mm/hr). The greater the number, the more likely inflammation is. The average ESR count is as follows:
Normal levels of ESR
Abnormal levels of ESR
Females under 50
Between 0 and 20 mm/hr.
Greater than 20
Males under 50
Between 0 and 15 mm/hr.
Greater than 15
Females over 50
Between 0 and 30 mm/hr
Greater than 30
People with low ESR values can have conditions like:
When people have moderately elevated levels of ESR, It may or may not be an indicator of any health condition.
Moderately elevated levels can be seen generally in many cases, but they can also indicate the following conditions:
Very high levels of ESR: extremely high levels of ESR are observed where the levels are above 100 mm per hour. These are indicators of very severe conditions like:
