According to my chart here from the lab, a normal sed rate is below 30 mm/h. Normal c-reactive protein is below .80 mg/dl. So, your c-reactive protein level is high which means you have inflammation. My doctor never puts too much faith in the sed rate, anything seems to set that off. Ironically, even when I am in my worse flare with ulcerative proctitis, both these levels are normal in my blood tests.
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008 for ten days.
Remission Nov 08 thru May of 09.
Slowly coming out of flare. Meds: Colazal (6 per day), prednisone 10 mgm and tapering weekly, Cort enema nightly, Canasa in morning, Benicar 20 mg for BP, flaxseed oil 3 x a day, fishoil 2 x a day, probiotic 3 x a day, calcium with D 1x a day and multivitamin.
Doctor had me on 100 mgm of 6MP which drastically lowered my white count. Now off the 6MP pending results of repeat white count. UGH.
