Why is this test important? This test provides a non-specific measure of inflammation in the body by measuring the sedimentation rate of red blood cells. The sedimentation rate describes how quickly red blood cells fall when in a test tube of plasma. Generally, red blood cells fall slowly, but inflammation creates fibrinogen, a clotting protein. This causes the red blood cells to stick together, increasing their weight and causing them to fall through the plasma more quickly.
Who should be tested? People with non-specific signs and symptoms of inflammation such as joint pain, stomach and digestive distress and/or chronic fatigue may benefit from this test.
