CK (Creatine Kinase)

Rapid elevations occur in myopathy and other causes of soft tissue damage, which peak within 6-12 hours of the insult. This primary muscle enzyme has a short half-life and even very high elevations can return to normal within 3-4 days. Over-interpretation of minor CK elevations should be avoided, except as a warning in cases of recurrent rhabdomyolysis.
