In one of your previous answers you said that a person would have a higher sed rate than 1 if they were infected with hiv. Why is this? Would people with hiv normally still be in normal ranges or would they normally be a lot higher? Did you say this because 1 is very low for a sed rate with somone with hiv infection?

A sed rate is a very nonspecific test. It is a test which if elevated indicates that some sort of inflammatory process is going on. There a hundreds of diseases that can cause an elevated sed rate.
