Does MAC & Bronchiectasis Contribute to a High ESR Test Result?
I really enjoy reading everyone's posts in this group. I learn so much.
I just received the results of my ESR test in my bloodwork.
Everything else in my bloodwork was really good but this one test was very bad! It was 43. Supposed to be between 0-20.
The doctor wants to track down what is causing this and I wonder if I can save her the time and tell her that it is probably the MAC/Bronchiectasis?
We just moved to here and this is the first blood work with this new doctor.
When we first arrived, she was dealing with a large skin cancer on my leg so we haven't even begun to tackle the other issues yet.
My doctors in Canada didn't feel they needed to treat my MAC or Bronchiectasis.
I am going to ask this doctor if she will prescribe me the 7% saline nebulizer.
What do you think about the ESR?
