CK enters the blood in increased amounts during damage to muscle cells, e.g.: in myocardial infarction, with intense training.
Elevated levels are also observed under the influence of certain drugs, after epileptic seizures with generalized convulsions, after extensive surgery, childbirth, trauma with massive damage to muscle mass.
