    Normal ESR Test Results

    ESR test results are measured in mm/hr, or millimeters per hour.

    The following are considered normal ESR test results:

    Women under age 50 should have an ESR under 20 mm/hr.

    Men under age 50 should have an ESR under 15 mm/hr.

    Women over age 50 should have an ESR under 30 mm/hr.

    Men over age 50 should have an ESR under 20 mm/hr.

    I assume you have 20 instead of 2.... which will be on the edge of normal....

    ESR measures the level of inflammation in your body.  If it is high it suggests you have inflammation somewhere in your body but it doesn’t tell your doctor exactly where the inflammation is.

    it indicates you are ok and no inflammation you have

    it is level of sedimentation of blood
