Does creatine kinase always increase with muscle injury?

Does creatine kinase always increase with muscle injury?

Yes?: CPK or ck is elevated in conditions of the muscles ( aldolase, SGOT and ldh too). We use it as screening because it's sensitivity. It may elevate with cholesterol medicines, also with heart attacks and with rhabdomyolysis ( when it is too high in the thousands may cause renal damage). After injury to large muscles ck may get elevated. ...Read more

Creatine Kinase (Definition)

Creatine kinase is an enzyme found in muscles throughout the body. There are different subtypes of the enzyme, called isoforms, which predominate in different organs. For instance, the isoform in skeletal muscles is different from that which is most heavily found in the heart muscle. A blood tests detects levels of this in the body, for example if ...Read more

I have pain in my thighs and my heart muscles as well i feel that my chest is locked my creatine kinase=412?

I have pain in my thighs and my heart muscles as well i feel that my chest is locked my creatine kinase=412?

Muscle Pain: You need to see a doctor to determine the cause. Obviously an astute physician or provider did a creatinine kinase (ck) test specifically for inflammation of the muscle. It would be helpful to know which isoenzymes were most prominent. Ck has two sources, skeletal muscle and heart muscle producing two different isoenzymes . Knowing the levels of each can help make the diagnosis. ...Read more

I hav pain n my heart, thighs muscle, chest i did test a.G ratio, creatine kinase, macroscopy-specificgravity wasn't normal which kind of doctor i refer?

We're trained to handle majority of common problems & conditions but s/he can refer you to appropriate specialists if need be. Be sure to tell her/him everything you're taking eg herbs, dietary supplements, otc meds, prescription stuff, everything! bring in original bottles if possible. ...Read more

I hav pain n my heart, thighs muscle, chest i did test a.G ratio:1.1 creatine kinase:412 macroscopy-specific gravity:1.005 which kind of doctor i refer?

Clinical context: The creatine kinase would be way-high if you are sedentary, may be normal if you exercise. I wouldn't draw any conclusions from any of the other data. Your primary care physician who ordered the exam is the one to interpret it. With widespread muscle pain, i'd want to rule out polymyositis, rhabdomyolysis from some cause, any of the other myopathies. ...Read more

Muscle (Definition)

It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
