SED RATE

Sed Rate

Pat Writes:
Sed Rate stands for erythrocyte sedimentation rate which is a marker of inflammation in the body.

Normal Values:
Men: up to 15mm/hr
Women: up to 20mm/hr
Kids: up t0 10mm/hr
Seniors: up to 30mm.hr

A normal reading suggests the is no inflammation while an elevated result indicates that there is some type of inflammation going on somewhere in the body.

Another marker of inflammation is C-Reactive Protein.
C-reactive protein is a special type of protein produced by the liver that is only present during episodes of acute inflammation.

Normal Values Normally there is no CRP in the blood serum.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
