    Kidney damage due to high ck levels

    Hi as I am aware creatine kinase levels above >6000 IU/L leads to kidney damage / renal failure

    With muscular dystrophy the creatine kinase levels are raised, my levels are around 7000 to 8500.

    Is kidney damage common with any members here?

    I have no idea what my CK level was tbh, I just got told I had Becker MD and that I would get an annual review with a neurologist, and my daughters would get “genetic counselling”; I am not aware that anything of the suchlike ever took place.
    I’m afraid I have never been advised about kidney damage, although the 100 units+ of alcohol I drink weekly will no doubt be damaging my kidneys! I do however get an ECG done every few years.

    A review of the medical literature gives, surprisingly, no easy answer here. Clearly it is a multifactorial problem that can be affected by lifestyle, as Ranald has indicated, exercise levels and of course MD as just a few factors. Of one thing you can be certain, if your GP becomes concerned that damage is being done then he/she will take steps to mitigate the problem. If you are concerned then , as Cat has already said, go pay your GP a visit and discuss your concerns.
