23 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Thyroxin Binding Globulin Increased

  • Third Trimester Pregnancy

    The concomitant phenomenon of a third trimester pregnancy with a significant degree of pelvic organ prolapse is extremely rare. We report on a patient with pelvic organ prolapse complicating third trimester pregnancy treated by concomitant cesarean hysterectomy and abdominal sacrocolpopexy. A 30-year-old woman,[…][]

  • Hashimoto Thyroiditis

    Abstract Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome is a constellation of signs and symptoms of simultaneous insufficiencies of several endocrine glands. Autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2 (APS 2) may be diagnosed when the adrenocortical insufficiency is associated with an autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's[…][]

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease Type 1

    […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate or level of C-reactive protein.[] Common laboratory findings include mild anemia, mild leukocytosis, elevated C-reactive protein (CRP), and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).[] Of the 4 patients with abnormal sedimentation rates before initiation of the diet, 2 individuals had normalization of sedimentation rates, 1 showed improvement, and 1 patient[]

  • Ulcerative Colitis

    Erythrocyte sedimentation rate can be measured, with an elevated sedimentation rate indicating that an inflammatory process is present.[] Anemia and an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate or C-reactive protein level may suggest inflammatory bowel disease, but the absence of laboratory abnormalities does[] […] erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or C-reactive protein level, which also indicate active inflammation.[]

  • Viral Hepatitis

    Abstract The commonest causes of acute pancreatitis are cholelithiasis and alcohol. Rare causes include various viral infections, among which mumps is the commonest. Hepatitis A, hepatitis B and, recently, hepatitis E have been reported to cause acute but mild pancreatitis in patients with acute viral hepatitis. This[…][]

  • De Quervain Thyroiditis

    sedimentation rate (ESR), suppression of iodine uptake Later hypothyroidism and antithyroid antibodies After weeks to months, patients become euthyroid Radiology images Images[] Our patient had several features that are commonly observed in subacute thyroiditis, such as neck pain and an elevated sedimentation rate.[] The patient had an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, low thyrotropin (TSH) and elevated thyroxine and triiodothyroinine levels with suppressed 131I thyroidal uptake[]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    Clinical laboratory studies At 13 months of age, blood counts ( Table 1 ), reticulocytes, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (16 mm/h), and routine serum chemistries were normal[] Serum lactic acid concentration was elevated (45.4 mg/dL [5 mmol/L]; normal, 9-16 mg/dL [1-1.8 mmol/L]), as was the serum pyruvic acid (2.5 mg/dL [284 μmol/L]; normal, 0.36[]

  • Postpartum Thyroiditis

    Abstract Thyroid function during pregnancy is characterized by changes in circulating thyroid hormone concentrations related to alterations in thyroxine binding globulin ([] Supporting laboratory data include an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein level, and thyroglobulin level.[] Liver disease, androgens, and nephrotic syndrome decrease thyroxine binding globulin (TBG) decreasing total thyroid hormones.[]

  • Hypothyroidism

    Disease features include low grade fever, thyroid pain, dysphagia, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).[] Risk of postpartum hyperthyroidism may be increased Increased thyroxin-binding globulin in the first trimester can result in TSH elevation to stabilize free thyroxine levels[] In pregnancy, free thyroxine levels may be lower than anticipated due to increased binding to thyroid binding globulin and decreased binding to albumin.[]
