sed rate
Does anyone know the answer to this?  Is a sed rate of 20 pretty low if a person has lupus?  Is there a norm of what a sed rate would usually be?

The normal range for a sed rate depends on the methodology the laboratory used. However, it is usually 0-20 MM/HR. I strongly suggest asking your physician to order a CRP level on you. The CRP test is more a more sensitive test and detects inflammation better than the sed rate.

Since CFS patients usually have a very low (but normal) sed rate (0-3 MM/HR), your results could indicate secondary adrenal insufficiency (that is what happened in my case) or an autoimmune disease.

I really do hope that you will join the session with Dr. Garth Nicolson here in MedHelp on Wednesday, May 20th from 12:00 - 1:00 PM
