Well creatine kinase seems to be a very important enzyme in the body.
An imbalance seems to be an indicator of maybe different presenting issues.
Just thought I would share this:
At my place of work, (gym) it seems that there has been a ‘very odd virus’.
Myself and several colleagues and now it seems clients have presented with symptoms which include dead feeling limbs (particularly left arm), regular leg cramps/ almost continuous, muscle tension and spasms (particularly back and neck), intense and debilitating joint pain, vein swelling, fever, occassional erratic heart beat, increased thirst and hunger, all blood tests proved normal with some low white blood cell counts, however mine included a test for creatine kinase and it was found to be a little high.
This would corelate to the muscle symtoms.
Just very odd to have a dead arm for weeks, and also your colleagues, with no known explanation,…..odd.
It has lasted between 3-13weeks to date.
Everyones comments here have helped me understand more about CK (yet also seems to raise more questions). Thanks though!
I hope evryone who is suffering directly or indirectly progresses through positively as speedily as is poss..
Could it have anything to do with air conditioning?
The people I know to be invoved were not taking supplements cept me/ multivit, protein, oils.
One of the difficulties in diagnosing NASH as the cause of severe scaring or cirrhosis is that as the scaring progresses to cirrhosis, the fat disappears. This results in a condition that is referred to as cryptogenic cirrhosis , cirrhosis in which there is no clear cause. (Specifically, in cryptogenic cirrhosis the two most common causes of cirrhosis - alcohol and viral hepatitis - are not involved.) Cryptogenic cirrhosis has puzzled physicians for many years as to its cause. However, it now appears that half of cryptogenic cirrhosis occurs in patients with obesity and/or diabetes and probably is due to NASH.
Yes. There are drugs your doctor may prescribe for treating both seasonal and 2009 H1N1 called “ antiviral drugs .” These drugs can make you better faster and may also prevent serious complications. This flu season, antiviral drugs are being used mainly to treat people who are very sick, such as people who need to be hospitalized, and to treat sick people who are more likely to get serious flu complications. Your health care provider will decide whether antiviral drugs are needed to treat your illness. Remember, most people with 2009 H1N1 have had mild illness and have not needed medical care or antiviral drugs and the same is true of seasonal flu.
