I read that anemia can have an effect on sedimentation rate.  Does anyone know how much of an effect.  I didn't know this at the time otherwise I would have asked my doctors.  My hemoglobin is around 10, and my sed. rate is 52.  I was just wondering if he can be sure there is inflammation when I am anemic.
Thanks.

I'm not sure. Try putting more detail in your subject and someone who knows will probably be along soon.

52 is a high sed rate, and very indicitave of inflammation. If anemia has an effect, it probably doesn't have such an effect to show a sed rate that high if there is no inflammation. Especially anemia that is mild as that is. But it is a good question to ask your doctor.
