Creatine Kinase (CK), Total


Symptoms like muscle weakness, pain, or
post-exercise swelling often trigger a CK (Creatine Kinase) test, which
assesses muscle and heart health by measuring blood CK levels. Elevated CK
levels can signify various conditions, including muscle damage or heart-related
issues. Heart-related symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or
irregular heartbeats may also prompt the test. It aids in diagnosing and
monitoring conditions like muscular dystrophy, myocardial infarction (heart
attack), or rhabdomyolysis, with treatment strategies tailored to the specific
condition, including medications, physical therapy, or lifestyle adjustments to
enhance muscle and heart health.
