Creatinine is a metabolic end-product formed by the catabolism of the muscles. This creatinine clearance is an important physiological function of the kidneys and released in urine. Serum and urine creatinine levels are tested to assess the kidney or renal functions, hence its determination of creatinine value indicates as a diagnostic tool in many pathological conditions such as kidney diseases, congenital conditions such as-born errors of metabolism, and conditions like muscular dystrophy.


This test is usually done for conditions such as infections to kidneys like glomerulonephritis, pyelonephritis, enlarged prostate, blockage of the urinary tract due to kidney stones, decreased blood flow to the kidneys (dehydration, diabetes, and congestive heart failure), drug abuse, and infections to kidneys such as post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis, kidney damage or kidney failure, etc. This test is suggested in patients with symptoms like fatigue, muscle cramps, trouble in sleeping, loss of appetite, lower back pain, changes in urine output and frequencies, high blood pressure, swelling or fluid retention, nausea, and vomiting, etc. Other associated tests include Jaffe’s method, enzymatic methods, colorimetric methods, kit methods, spectrometric methods, etc.
