Do you mind poting your numbers and if you still have regular pain or improvement in pain.
My ESR was a three
My ESR is nearly always elevated. My CRP was a bit elevated once.
Ok, I have in front of me three results from the same lab spaced over a period of about a year (this past year).
My CRP was elevated once.
My ESR ranges from 6 mm/hr to 11 mm/hr - reference range was <21 mm/hr. So normal.
My pain migrates and is intermittent, but these days is mostly in my knees, and when it hits, it is painful, more so than ever before.
Not sure if this is meaningful, but everytime, by every lab - including stoneybrook and immunetics and imugen and mayo, my MCHC value is elevated.
I need to go back and compare to past results. I don't think I have had too many CUP or ESR tests done. When I find results will post.
Now looks like I need to focus on lowering tryglicerides
Forgot to mention my pain has improved, mostly knees but Mort intermittent and fewer surprising sharp pains without warning that can bring me to my knees of take breathe away.
Thanks for responses.
I wish lab ranges were consistent. Found articles that suggested an ESR of 3 was at the high end of range but labcorp range indicates closer to middle. And how hard can it be to also list an optimal value.
For example, I finally had another CD57 test done and my result increased after year of antibiotics treatment
2013 cd57 % 1.9% 2015 3.6% range 2.0-17%
2013 cd57 abs 55. 2015 68 range 60-360
It would be helpful for people to know the optimal values w/o having to go figure it out.
If your clinician checked your cd57 value, he/she probably checked your C6. Do you know if a C6 peptide test was run?
RBC SED Rate 0-20 mm/hr 03/20/15 3 03/30/12 8 11/14/12 8
C Reactive Protein 0.01-0.82 mg/dl 11/14/12 0.47
0.0-4.9 mg/L 03/20/15 3.3
Hope this stays formatted
I know there is an option to preserve formatting but I forgot
At highest my CRP was 15. ESR never elevated. No obvious correlation with symptoms, though my CRP is lower now (1-2 usually).
I have tested my ESR and hs-CRP monthly for the past 2 years.
Although i suffer from every disease that ends with -itis, ESR and hs-CRP have always stayed very low. That's in total contrast to my cytokines and chemokines which are extremely elevated, try to figure that out.
Do you also have lyme?
Yes, i have lyme disease.
My ESR and CRP havd been low also. Thought these were suppose to be reliable tests to reflect inflammation.
I finally testedfor manganese and it was low. Last time I wanted yo test it ended up testing rbc magnesium
