Description

Creatine kinase (CK) is an enzyme found in heart, muscles, and other organs like small intestine, brain, and uterus and is released into the blood following an injury to these organs. CK-MB, an isoenzyme of CK is considered more specific for heart muscle. Test is done if a heart attack is suspected to confirm heart muscle injury. Cardiac troponin is more sensitive and specific than CK-MB, and is also used for the same purpose.

Test Instructions

Test is performed on a blood sample. No preparation is needed. Inform your doctor about all the medicines, vitamins, nutritional supplements, herbal or ayurvedic preparations, and homeopathic medicines you are taking
