Normal Value Results In The Rate Of Blood Sludge?
Good morning, I am valen I am 24 years old, I want to ask at first my friend was detected as having TB and at that time I did not know that he had the disease … I accidentally drank water from his drinking bottle … and after I I was afraid of being infected, I did a blood check … and the result was that my sedimentation rate was exceeding the maximum limit … which is usually 0-20mm / hr. The rate of my sedimentation is 24mm / hr?
Good afternoon, Valen, thank you for asking.
The rate of edification of blood or commonly abbreviated as LED is a method of measurement to see how quickly red blood cells (erythrocytes) settle. Normally, the red blood cells will settle slowly as shown in the reference to the normal value of your laboratory test results. An increase in the number of LEDs, can indicate the process of inflammation or infection in the body that can be caused by various conditions or diseases in your body, such as inflammation due to autoimmune diseases, inflammation or infection that has lasted a long time, new inflammation in the organs of the body, etc. -other.
To find out the exact cause, it is advisable to consult further with your doctor, for further examination because there are many possibilities that cause your LED results to increase.
I hope this helps.
