Creatine phosphokinase
sosunny2012 posted:
My husband had a routine blood test a few weeks ago and we were told that his CPK came back a little high. We went back twice this week to have it done again and it is still high. Dr. thinks its because of his dyskinesia, (usually attributed to heart attack). Anyone else having issues with Creatine in their body?

I have also had elevated CPK. We are watching it to see the trending. My Endocrinologist says that I most likely have it elevated because I have a fair amount of muscle wasting.
