Thanks for posting your query.
The TLC and Serum CPK levels are on higher side in neonates that is the newly born babies and that is the normal physiological response.
The birth is a stressful time in neonate and there is severed umbilical cord and inflammation associated with it and a lots of fresh challenges from the new environment. All these factors cause increased readings.
The parameters usually fall to the reference ranges in 1-3months time.
So you do not need worry about slightly abnormal tests.
