ESR TEST FOR TUBERCULOSIS

My wife had an ESR Test done. And the result was 40mm/hr. Does this mean she has a TB infection? What is the range of ESR IN case of an infection?

Usually female have raised esr for 100 reasons. Only raised esr - don't confirm TB. Other symptoms why this test was done is important. Kindly ignore if raised esr was a result of any general routine blood test. If you want to still confirm TB, you need to consult a pulmonologist only. Please.
