Jan 5, 2013

hi I just found out my brother has hight CPK, the doctor said that every time he goes for a check up its higher but he is not sure to why. my brother is only 18 is this dangers?

Response from Mr. Vergel

If he is HIV+, some medications like Isentress or Intelence have been reported to cause increases in CPK in a minority of patients. Excessive exercise and some muscular diseases can also cause elevated CPK.
