My dad had elevated CPK levels at diagnosis... all we could find out is that it's often associated with ALS - if Jamie says that levels going down are good then I'm all with that!

And please let me know how the smartnav4:AT works out! I just sent a link to my dad to check it out -

best,
Karen

Humberto,

CPK is an enzyme that shows muscular injury that is often used to determine if heart damage has occurred. There is no established relationship with CPK and ALS progression but one could theorize that a reduction could be good - most likely its unrelated but it is interesting.

Hi Karen,

Do you know if there is any correlation about the subject? As of I had begun on Li the CPK level has dropped down as listed below.

jan 08- 430 UI/L
mar 08- 240 UI/L
jul 08- 170 UI/L

ps. I brought the smartnav4:AT. Waiting for it. Probably I will receive it on a week. Smile

Best,
H
