Understanding Creatine Kinase in Kolkata

What is Creatine Kinase in Kolkata?

A Creatine Kinase test measures the levels of creatine kinase in your blood. This enzyme is a high-energy substance used by our body to generate energy. It is found in our skeletal muscle, heart muscle, and brain. When any of these tissues are damaged, they release creatine kinase into your bloodstream. Repeated testing may also help monitor muscle damage or detect a subsequent or second heart attack early on.

What does Creatine Kinase measure?

Creatine kinase is a type of enzyme found in muscles, especially in heart muscles. It is of three types: CK-MM (found mostly in your skeletal muscles), CK-MB (found mostly in your heart muscle), and CK-BB (found mostly in your brain tissue).

CK levels typically rise sharply within 3 to 5 hours after a heart attack, reach a maximum level after 12-14 hours, and return to normal range after 3-4 days after a heart attack. Doctors often repeat this test to check the CK levels after some time.
