CPK Blood test

Does anyone know what this test can mean when the numbers are off the chart. Was told its possible Rhem. Arther. Is there any other things it could mean.

any input thanks.

Re: CPK Blood test

CPK is a measurement of enzymes released when muscle damage occurs. Very high numbers are often seen when someone has a big injury, such as with a major fall or car accident. What did your doctor say?

Re: CPK Blood test

Hi Patty,

In regards to the actual number the range on this is suppose to be 93-163 I guess and my husbands number was 465. He is going to a Rheumy on friday. The funny thing about it is I have done some research and came across blood test results and he has had his ALK PHOS. elevated for a long time. One of the other blood test in which I do believe the doc will do is the EOS test and if that is high to with the alk. Phos. It stated that its common in RA. Here the doc hasnt known why his alk phos. test is always high they never went this route before. He has had alot pain for some time. I just hope it hasnt done other damage to him. Will find out more on friday.
Thanks
Wendy
