Is elevated RDW-SD typical with PMR diagnosis?

Welcome @pshjrb, I'm not sure that red cell distribution width standard deviation test (RDW-SD) is a typical indicator for diagnosis of PMR but there is some evidence that it may be an indicator of an early relapse of PMR.

Have you been diagnosed with PMR?
