    My Bloodwork came back and my CK levels were elevated. Not sure how high but they were elevated. Does anyone know what this means?

    Creatine phosphokinase

    It has something to do with Muscle disorder.

    Ck levels can be elevated after exercise . The level can go up and down .
    Doctors check them for myositis problem (muscular damage ) an disease like MS,
    maythis Graves (sp?) ,thryroid problems ectra......
    I wouldn't be to overly concerned unless they are really high up there.
