How does he FEEL?: Athletic participation can raise CK very high in young people; if he's keeping up in fitness activities with other youngsters, I'm less concerned than if he complains of weakness. However, the only person who can help is his primary care physician and the neruologist to whom Junior may be referred -- SGOT/SGPT "liver enzymes" can come from muscle.
