Moderately elevated ESR occurs with inflammation but also with anemia, infection, pregnancy, and with aging. A very high ESR usually has an obvious cause, such as a severe infection, marked by an increase in globulins, polymyalgia rheumatica or temporal arteritis.

Esr is to signify any inflammvatory or infective process going inside the body...It signifies the sedimentation rate of erythrocytes is faster comparatively which is a slower process in normal conditions. So it's obvious that uti has high esr since infective inflammatory process is involved in body.
