ESR is basically non specific test
it shows life span of different diseases
related to time n severity
and when actual treatment is followed the ESR will settle back to its normal range

Please don't worry about this level of ESR at this age group however do complete blood count of the patient to look for anemia which is usually associated with hypothyroidism and can explain raised ESR. for proper evaluation and management you can have online appointment with me through Marham or can visit my clinic at Salma and Kafeel Medical Services 38-East Zahoor Plaza near D Chowk blue area Jinnah Avenue Islamabad
