Re: Toddler MD Symptoms *Please Help*

Hi espen19,

If your son's blood CK level was normal then that is a positive sign (at least as far as muscular dystrophy goes). Almost all MD victims have an elevated CK level. I think 80-120 is normal. CK leaks into the blood when a muscle cell ruptures or dies. Mine is typically 350-500. I have a slow progression MD. Duchenne's victims can have CK levels in the thousands; 5000-20,000. I would try to follow through with the current investigation. Hopefully you can at least rule out muscular dystrophy. Best of luck!
