The Creatinine Serum Test measures creatinine levels in a blood sample and helps screen for kidney disease.
The Creatinine Blood Test works by collecting a blood sample and measuring blood levels of creatinine, a waste product typically excreted through the kidneys. This test also measures eGFR — how much blood per minute your kidneys filter. Low eGFR can indicate poor kidney function.This test can be ordered as part of a general wellness exam, or if someone exhibits signs of kidney disease.
The Creatinine Blood Test is useful in the evaluation of kidney function and in monitoring renal dialysis. Abnormal levels of creatine in the blood may be one of the first signs of kidney disease. If kidney disease is detected early, an individual can seek treatment before it worsens. This test may also monitor disease progression and the effectiveness of the treatment.
