HIV and elevated muscle enzyme (CPK)
« on: April 07, 2008, 12:27:47 PM »
Hello, my cousin has been infected since 1989. As his T4 count went low ( from 700 in 2005 to 123 in 2008) he decided to start a ARV treatment. In fact he is going to stat it tonight (Kaletra + Kivexa). But I would like to know if you know any cases of high CPK count non associated to ARV treatment. My cousin ( we are in Paris) has been showing a slow and abnormal progress in CPK ( between 3000 and 4000). Thank you  :)

My husband was told not to go out and excersie at least 2 days before a doctors appt. because it can raise you CPK reading so if he exercises on a regular basis this could be the issue.
