ESR Test

What is an erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)?

An erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a type of blood test that measures how quickly erythrocytes (red blood cells) settle at the bottom of a test tube that contains a blood sample. Normally, red blood cells settle relatively slowly. A faster-than-normal rate may indicate inflammation in the body.

What is it used for?

An ESR test can help determine if you have a condition that causes inflammation. These include arthritis, vasculitis, or inflammatory bowel disease. An ESR may also be used to monitor COVID.

Why do I need an ESR?

Your health care provider may order an ESR if you have symptoms of an inflammatory disorder. These include:

  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Joint stiffness
  • Neck or shoulder pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Anemia
  • Covid

What happens during an ESR?

Our expert phlebotomist will take a blood sample from a vein/fingertip in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. This usually takes less than two minutes. Book ESR test today at the convenience of your home today with CNC Pathlab.

Will I need to do anything to prepare for an ESR?

You don't need any special preparations for this test.

What do the results mean?

If your ESR is high, it may be related to an inflammatory condition, such as:

  • Infection
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Rheumatic fever
  • Vascular disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Certain cancers
  • COVID
  • Sometimes the ESR can be slower than normal.
