low muscle enzymes

    
Asked by iloveitaly (Female; 55; UNITED STATES; was on lipitor, DR stopped medication due to blood test indicating "low muscle enzymes". Also have collagenous colitis...no other health issues known.; Relevant drugs:lipitor, xanax, klonopin, albuterol ) on Wed 24, Mar 2010 01:59pm

I was told by my DR. that I have "low muscle enzymes" after a routine blood test since I was taking Lipitor, my question is how serious it is condition and if the enzymes will replenish themselves since I am no longer taking lipitor ? Also, could this have damaged my heart ? Or could it cause tiredness and fatigue ?

Hi, Usually the common enzyme measured are CPK and lactate dehydrogenase which tend to elevate in fibromyalgia and degenerative cardiac conditions etc. Increase in the levels of such enzymes signifies degeneration or injury to skeletal or heart muscle tissues. In your case the muscle enzymes have come down with the regular treatment which shows decreased progression of disease activities. Therefore your doctor might have stopped lipitor. But as you have not mentioned the specific names of enzymes so nothing much can be told beyond this level and your treating doctor can best explain the condition and rationale for stoppage of medicine as he is in full knowledge of your case. Hope this helps.

HI I was told by my doctor that I have "low muscle enzymes". What causes this? I am on Thyroid medication (Synthroid 0.1 mg) and have fibromyalgia. Should I get this checked regularly to see if anything changes and is there anything that helps to change low muscle enzymes? Any help you could provide would be very much appreciated.
