Letter with secret code ??

Postby stedavey » Fri Aug 21, 2015 9:44 pm

Hi guys sorry to bother you all .... I've recived my letter today from the consultant confirming the diagnosis of fibromyalgia.

The letter basicly advising my gp what medication to prescribe and where to refer me to next.

At the bottom of the letter it says and I quote

" P'S CK=313, REST OF BLOOD TESTS WITHIN NORMAL RANGE "

So what the he'll is a ck=313 ??? I'm betting that no one will know but worth an ask right ??

Look forward to your response guys

Creatine Kinase

The small amount of CK that is normally present in the blood comes primarily from skeletal muscles. Any condition that causes muscle damage and/or interferes with muscle energy production or use can cause an increase in CK. For example, inflammation of muscles, called myositis, can increase CK concentrations.


(Or so it said on Google) ;)
