Q: 

Can lisinopril cause elevated muscle enzyme levels?

A: Hi, no it is not due to the medication I know you know this... but I also need to know in order to help..OK Lisinopril is a drug of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor class that is primarily used in treatment of hypertension, congestive heart failure, heart attacks and also in preventing renal and retinal complications of diabetes.- Elevated muscle enzymes may be the result of several conditions or disorders. When disease or injury to your cells occurs, your body releases large quantities of enzymes into your bloodstream. Your doctor can assess your condition by the various levels. He can determine if you have tissue damage, and whether it is healing or continuing to deteriorate by comparing...


Q: 

  low muscle enzymes

A: Hi, Usually the common muscle enzymes measured are CPK and lactate dehydrogenase which tend to elevate infibromyalgia. Increase in the levels of such enzymes signifies degeneration or injury to skeletal or heartmuscle tissues. In your case the muscle enzymes have come down which shows decreased progression of diseaseactivities. There are certain other enzymes like 3-hydroxy-CoA-dehydrogenase and citrate synthase whichdecrease due to reduced activity of the muscles(esp. in chronic fatigue syndrome patients) and reducedcapillarization. Thus decrease in ATP synthesis leading to increase in...


Q: 

What Causes High muscle enzymes?

A: The high level of enzymes in the cytoplasm of the muscles can cause inflammation or rheumatism due to liver problems, alcohol consumption or stress to muscle tissues and other disorders or toxicity, or even hereditary problems. High muscle enzymes can be caused by certain medications, most notably statin medications for lowering cholesterol. Heavy exertion or kidney problems could also be a cause. Breakdown of the muscle can result in release of tryponin, a major muscle enzyme. Their release is dangerous in that it indicates that something serious is occuring....

Q: 

elevated muscle enzymes?

A: While it could be stress and anxiety, it may not be. My muscle enzymes were always above normal, but my doctor attributed the results to my weightlifting. I would not venture to place it into the anxiety category until the neurologist has done a complete examination. In the meanwhile, keeping reading up and gathering information. Be steadfast and proactive with your neurologist. You can get through this. If you happen to have MS, you can re-establish a new normalcy. In my own case, what is now normal for me is in no way what normal was 20 years ago! It is quite easy to slip into depression due to the feeling that you are not normal and that your diagnosis is taking too long. Keeping an active mind helps battle the "blues". In the...


Q: 

elevated muscle enzyme labs

A: HI Lalemu! I am sorry you are feeling bad. I am right there with you. I am actually waiting for my doctor to call and tell me my muscle enzyme results. They took my blood yesterday to check for things. I have tired muscles and twitching that has gone on for months. We are starting with that test first and then I have more to come. It''s a process of elimination I guess. Please let me know how you are doing and what you find out. That is weird that your number was high and then dropped like that. I wouldn''t think it would be bad though, at least it didn''t stay up high. Get to feeling better! Thank you for responding TEdwards. He is thinking that I have polymyolitis. Not sure if I spelled that correctly. You know, at this point,...

Q: 

muscle enzymes

A: Do you know which enzymes? What did your doctor say? Could be as simple as a virus. Don''t go scaring yourself reading things on the internet, better to ask your GP what it is likely to be in your circumstances and in accordance with your symptoms and other test results. Another new ''techy widget'' some quango to play with. You''ve probably eaten too much yoghurt? blood test revealed CPK of 573 and a previous CPK of359 they said the new one is higher. they are thinkging of doing a muscle biopsy. i had a EMG with nerve conduction this came back negtive to. doctors said we do not have a diagnosis, put me on duloxetine for the pain. Do you drink much alcohol? Could be related to that or a virus. If not then I''d guess they would look at...
