In Response To: A Certain Blood Test (D.M.)
It's a measure of how fast the erythrocytes (red blood cells)
settle at the bottom of a test tube. Faster sedimentation rates
indicate that proteins may be present that induce that; you
will probably either get some further testing, or it will be
more interpretable by your physician in the context of the
other parts of your test panel.
