Good to know
I work out regularly. Why is it important to have creatine kinase levels tested and what would the results indicate?
With a view to assessing whether the physical load fits physical capacity, whether the workout intensity is appropriate and whether the body has enough rest between sessions, it is recommended having creatine kinase levels tested.
For sportspeople, increased creatine kinase levels may be a consequence of intense physical load and muscles being overworked. If the test value does not drop even after a break in exercising, it may be an indication of muscle damage.
Do I have to register for the test?
You do not have to schedule an appointment in advance, you can simply check in at reception and request to be tested.
