Creatinine Test In Gurgaon

Creatinine Test In Gurgaon

Creatinine is a chemical compound in your body leftover from energy-producing processes that take place in your muscles. Creatinine is removed from the blood by healthy kidneys. Creatinine is excreted in the urine. Creatinine levels in your blood and/or urine are measured in this creatinine serum test in Gurgaon. Creatinine can build up in the blood if your kidneys aren’t working properly, and the amount excreted in urine will be lower than usual. It can be a key symptom of renal disease if your blood and/or urine creatinine levels are abnormal.

About Creatinine Test

Why is the Creatinine Test done?

A creatinine test is used to see if your kidneys are functioning properly. It’s frequently ordered in tandem with another kidney test called blood urea nitrogen (BUN) or as part of a full metabolic panel (CMP). A CMP is a set of tests that provides information on the body’s various organs and systems and is frequently performed as part of a normal checkup. If you have weariness, puffiness around the eyes, swelling in your feet and/or ankles, decreased appetite, frequent and painful urination, and foamy or bloody urine, you may need this test.

What does the Creatinine Test measure?

A creatinine test:

  • assesses the function of your kidneys and determines if they are filtering waste from your blood.
  • diagnoses you or screens for kidney disease if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or other diseases that raise your risk of kidney disease
  • monitors renal disease treatment or the progression of pharmacological adverse effects such as kidney damage or changed kidney function, as well as the function of a donated kidney.
Risk/side effects of Creatinine Test

There aren’t any known risks involved with getting a Creatinine Test in Gurgaon other than slight swelling in the area where the blood was drawn. This could be since the test is done in two parts, the creatinine clearance test involves collecting your urine over 24 hours and then having your blood drawn. The results of this test will be used in a mathematical formula that figures out your creatinine clearance. Creatinine clearance is one way to estimate your glomerular filtration rate (GFR), or how well the kidneys are filtering your blood. The GFR are the key digits used by your doctor to determine how well your kidneys are working.

Interpreting the Creatinine Test results

Creatinine is measured in milligrams per deciliter of blood (mg/dL). People who are on the muscular end of the spectrum often have higher creatinine levels. These results may vary depending on age and gender. Normal creatinine levels range from anywhere between 0.9 to 1.3 mg/dL in men and 0.6 to 1.1 mg/dL in women who are 18 to 60 years old. Normal levels are approximately the same for people over the age of 60. High serum creatinine levels in the blood mean that the kidneys aren’t functioning properly.

Creatinine Reading (mg/dL) Health Risk
