What is CPK test done for?
In respect to this, what does it mean when your CPK level is high?
When the total CPK level is very high, it most often means there has been injury or stress to muscle tissue, the heart, or the brain. Muscle tissue injury is most likely. When a muscle is damaged, CPK leaks into the bloodstream. Diagnose heart attack.
Similarly, what are the symptoms of high CK levels? Elevated creatine kinase may accompany other symptoms of a heart attack including:
- Chest pain or pressure.
- Difficulty breathing.
- Lightheadedness or dizziness.
- Pain that radiates to the jaw or down the arm.
- Profuse sweating.
- Rapid heart rate (tachycardia)
Simply so, what drugs increase CPK levels?
Drugs that can increase CPK measurements include amphotericin B, certain anesthetics, statins, fibrates, dexamethasone, alcohol, and cocaine.
