I've been suffering twitches in my left palm for some time, less than 2 months. I also suffer from fatigue lately, and from passing head aches. A month ago my I saw my GP about this, and he referred me to specific blood tests before referring me to a neurologist. I gave the blood yesterday, and at night I received the complete results. Almost all is within normal range (incl Vit B12, Magnesium, Potassium), except the CPK which is 211, while the normal range is 38-160. I am quite worried about this. My main worry is about my head. I never take statins.  I've left a message for my GP and am awaiting his call.

for me that shows up that ther's anywhere a sort of injury or stress factors... :-/
and that you need not to stres out your creatin levels in tissues ;)... so far too much of exercisings??) Perhaps is this due to a sort of reactive tissue response  by and from and with exercising??) remember the words of my teacher Uhlenbruck: *Sport ist Mord.*.. sometimes ;) :K) wish you a quick recovery... would go for more rest...

Need to look at how the body stores glucose as glycogen and then releases it back into the circulation. Try going even lower carb and higher protein for a while and then retest.

I just want to be sure what CPK is.

Is it Creatine phosphokinase?

If so, the creatine in the meat would add more creatine but lower the levels because of the lower glucose levels?  :-/

Thanks a million. Starting as from now, and will retest after one month.

Yes, creatine phosphokinase.

Had my irises checked 2 weeks ago and told to lower my sugar consumption.

An elevated CPK can indicate a number of things. Sometimes an injury even a minor injury to a skeletal muscle, or a MI (heart attack) or stroke or possibly a TIA. To really know for sure this is a type of lab test that requires fractionation in order to determine which fraction of the total is elevated.
