Cpk high
Sep 25, 2008
I gave blood on 4/11/2008 & my CPK came back 138.0
Now, I just got back my bloodwork from 9/12/008 & it's 182.0 HIGH
I am on simvastatin for cholesterol & lovaza. Do these have anything
to do with this. Why would it go so high in a few months. I am
seeing my heart dr. on Nov. 4. she said everthing is normal.
The range from the lab on this iw 24.0 - 170.0

CK is a measure of the amount of serum creatine kinase (the amount of creatine kinase in your blood).

Normally the creatine kinase is in your muscles. If the muscles get damaged, the CK gets into your blood.

A high CK can indicate you over-did it at the gym, banged your finger with a hammer, were bitten by your cat, had a heart attack, slept on your arm, or any number of things.

So a high CK test would always be followed up by another CK test a couple of weeks later. If the CK stays high, it means something.

But your CK is so very slightly high they probably won't even bother doing a repeat test.
