Why To Book
The Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) Test is performed to detect any inflammation in the body. Conditions such as infections, cancers, and autoimmune diseases can cause the body to become inflamed. The test can also be used to monitor the progress of inflammatory conditions or evaluate the response to treatment of these conditions.
The ESR blood test is done to determine the inflammation that occurs due to the clumping of red blood cells(RBCs). This clumping further affects the rate at which RBCs settle down in the test tube. Normally, RBCs settle down slowly in the test tube. However, a faster fall may indicate inflammation in the body.
No special preparation is needed before taking the ESR lab test.
