Creatine Kinase
Hi, I am a relatively healthy 28 year old male but I previously had high cholesterol so my doctor has had me taking 20 mg simivastin for the past three years.  This has brought my cholesterol down to normal levels where diet and exercise could not.  I switched doctors and they gave me a blood test that revealed a creatine kinase (CK) level of 2139.  Normal levels are >200 U/L.  I looked at my previous doctors lab results and they had never tested for CK.  I just started running again (~2.5 miles every other day) about 2 weeks before the blood test and ran the night before the test.  I experience normal soreness associated with running, but nothing like my doctor described for high CK levels.  Is it possible that my muscles have been getting damaged for the past three years and I didn't know about it?
