Overview of Creatinine Clearence Test

What is Creatinine Clearence Test?

The Creatinine Clearance test is performed to measure the rate at which a metabolic waste product called creatinine is filtered out of the blood by the kidneys to check kidney health and functioning.The amount of blood the kidneys can make creatinine-free each minute is called the creatinine clearance. This test also performs diagnosis of a kidney disease or dysfunction determined by any shortage of blood flow to the kidneys.

Why is Creatinine Clearence Test done?

  1. To help in diagnosis of kidney disease and dysfunction
  2. To diagnose a condition upon appearance of symptoms like swelling in the face and around eyes, lower back pain in the region where kidneys are located, decreased urine production, painful urination, appearance of blood in the urine, foamy urine, etc.
  3. To diagnose a condition when abnormal results appear in a blood creatinine test or estimated glomerular filtration rate test
  4. To diagnose a condition if there is a chronic condition affecting blood flow to the kidneys like heart congestion, hypertension, etc.
