|Sed Rates of 9 and above
Feb 3, 2002
Hi, Dr. Mark,
I know that very low sed rates--- 0 or 1 -- indicate unlikely hiv infection.
When sed rates are up to 9/10 does this make it more difficult to say "unlikely hiv infection."?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
That number is still in the normal range. The sed rate test is very nonspecific and should never be used in determining and HIV diagnosis.
