Why do I have extreme high levels of ck (skeletal muscle enzymes) be the result of?

Why do I have extreme high levels of ck (skeletal muscle enzymes) be the result of?

CPK: Creatine (phospho)kinase. This enzyme will be elevated generally in disorders that injure muscle or when muscles are not working right. Extremes of exercise or injury can cause this, as can disorders of the muscles themselves, some hereditary. There are other forms of the enzyme that can come from other parts of the body, so this should be evaluated by a practitioner. ...Read more

Could AST and alt (liver enzyme) be as high as the 200s because of a over worked inflamed muscle?

Could AST and alt (liver enzyme) be as high as the 200s because of a over worked inflamed muscle?

Liver enzymes: Ast and alt are released when the liver cells (hepatocytes) become injured. Usual physical activity with muscle soreness would be very unlikely to be associated with liver injury. However, many common medications, including Acetaminophen (tylenol) can cause liver cell injury. ...Read more

Slightly elevated AST and ALT enzymes in blood work. It was ordered for fatigue/muscle weakness. What does this mean?

Maybe "hepatitis": Hepatitis is defined as inflammation of liver cells, as is indicated by elevation in serum transaminases (ast and/or alt). Hepatitis can be caused by a variety of issues (infectious, ischemic, metabolic, toxic, infiltrative, alcohol-related, drugs, etc.). It is impossible to say why your liver tests are elevated without more information. However, your values may rise due to muscle problems too. ...Read more
