Re: blood test raised ASP levels

Those acronyms don't sound familiar, but there are liver enzyme tests with similar names (AST, ALT). My gastro doc also mentioned something about my Sedimentation Rate being high. I didn't look it up yet, but I think it has something to do with inflammation.

Re: blood test raised ASP levels

Thanks the letters were ESR mum got them wrong! and you are right we looked it up and it is for ''Enthrocite Sedimentation Rate'' which does infact check for inflamation. Many Thanks.
