Creatinine Test


A creatinine test is a blood test that measures the amount of a chemical called creatinine in your blood. Creatinine is a byproduct of your muscles that is naturally produced during muscle production. A healthy kidney works like a filter, continuously removing creatinine from your blood and other waste products. A blood test for creatinine tells us how much creatinine is in your blood. It’s a vital indicator of how well your kidneys are working. If your kidneys aren’t working properly, your blood has too much creatinine in it. Too much creatinine can signal that your kidneys are not working as well as they should, or that your kidneys may be damaged. It’s often used in conjunction with other tests to diagnose and track kidney health.
