CPK levels high and fluctuating. Started exhaustive hydration plan. Can he wrestle?

my son is a wrestler and cuts approximately 6-10 lbs every week to make weight. He was recently seen by a Dr. and blood tests were taken. his cpk levels were 777 about a week ago and then dropped to 277 with a weeks rest and back up to 300 after a couple of days rest, and then spiked to 1261 after going back to full strength wrestling and cutting weight. He feels fine, and shows no signs of any weakness. We have shut him down from wrestling completely and started an exhaustive hydration plan. What are the chances of him getting back into wrestling within the next 8-10 days

thank you.
rapid weight loss is not feasible.
regular physical exercise & control of diet is the mainstay of reduction of weight.
CPK level may be raised due to vigorous physical exercise & it become normal after taking rest.
so it is better for your son to reduce the weight gradually, not rapidly.
take care.
