User avatar Hello 111,

With muscle atrophy and elevations of the CPK levels, one must consider muscular dystrophies as a possible cause. I would recommend you see a neurologist that specializes in neuromuscular disorders if possible. These subspecialists are the experts of these types of disorders.

I was not able to review your entire medical record. My knowledge of the specifics of these disorders is limited so I can't offer much more information for you.

Best wishes.

Thank you doctor

But in Palestine we don't have specializes in neuromuscular disorders, but I go to the neurologist, and I don't stop her only, I sent my medical report to Czech and the professor there say to me that doesn't have any medical but give me Q10, Monohaydrate (Protein) and vitamins.

thanks to you again
