Know more about Creatinine Kinase (CPK) test

The Creatinine Kinase blood test monitors the level of creatinine in the blood. This test is helpful for your doctor to examine how well your kidneys are working.

Symptoms of Creatinine Kinase include: 

loss of appetite

fatigue and trouble sleeping

lower back pain (near the kidneys)

Sudden change in urine output and frequency

high blood pressure

swelling in the face, wrists, ankles, or abdomen



An increase in levels of from normalcy indicates that there was some recent muscle damage. But it will not indicate the location of damage or cause behind it.

Serial test results that rise and then drops indicates new muscle damage has diminished while increasing and continuing elevations suggest damage.

Increased Creatinine Kinase levels may be seen in some muscular disorders (myopathies) as well. Individuals having increased Creatinine Kinase levels suggest the severity of muscle damage. Individuals having rhabdomyolysis may have Creatinine Kinase levels that are 100 times normal levels and occasionally even higher.

Increased Creatinine Kinase can be seen with, for example:

Recent crush and compression of muscle injuries, burns, trauma and electrocution

Inherited myopathies (muscular dystrophy)

Hormonal (endocrine) disorders, like Addison disease or Cushing disease and Thyroid disorders

Regular strenuous exercise


Prolonged surgeries

Viral infections ( influenza and HIV), fungal, bacterial, and parasitic (malaria)

Connective tissue disorders ( lupus, rheumatoid arthritis)

Renal failure

Celiac disease

Symptoms noticed in critically ill patients: 

High fever followed by shivering

A blood clot (thrombosis) that blocks the flow of blood

Any toxin or drug that interferes with muscle energy production 

Try to control your blood sugar level if you have diabetes. Keep a healthy blood pressure by keeping a check on it regularly. Consume a low-salt, low-fat diet. Exercise or walk at least 30 minutes on regular basis. Try and maintain a healthy weight. Do not smoke or consume tobacco. Decrease your alcohol intake.

Kidney disease complications can be controlled through treatments that can include: 

High blood pressure medications: Individuals with kidney disease may experience worsening increased blood pressure. Your doctor will prescribe medications to lower your blood pressure like commonly angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers.  Initially, high blood pressure medications can also decrease your kidney function and change electrolyte levels. So you will need frequent blood tests to monitor your condition. 

Medications to lower cholesterol levels: Your doctor will also prescribe medications called statins to lower your cholesterol. Individuals with chronic kidney disease often experience high levels of bad cholesterol. It increases the risk of heart disease. 

A lower protein diet will be advised by your doctor to minimize waste products in your blood. Normally, your body processes protein from the foods you eat. It creates waste products that your kidneys filters from your blood.

Your doctor may recommend you to eat less protein as per your medical history.

Test Method 1: The Creatinine Kinase test requires a blood sample. A small amount of blood is collected from your vein of the arm.
