Understanding Serum Creatinine in Allahabad


What is Serum Creatinine in Allahabad?

A Serum Creatinine test measures the level of creatinine in the blood and is available at an affordable price in Allahabad with Tata 1mg labs. Creatinine is a natural waste product in the blood and urine and is removed via the kidneys. Your doctor may advise this test to evaluate your kidneys' health or to detect kidney diseases. It also serves as a valuable tool to monitor ongoing treatment response for known kidney disease.

Abnormally high levels of creatinine warn of a possible malfunction, damage, or failure of the kidneys. Creatinine levels can be naturally decreased by changing diet and lifestyle and reducing protein intake. If the creatinine levels are still high, your doctor will recommend a treatment plan.

What does Serum Creatinine measure?

A Serum Creatinine test measures the level of creatinine in the blood. Creatinine is a byproduct of muscles’ wear and tear during energy production. The kidneys remove it from the body by filtering it from the blood and releasing it into the urine. Therefore, blood creatinine levels indicate how well the kidneys are functioning in filtering and removing waste products from the blood. Generally, higher creatinine levels in the blood may indicate reduced kidney function, while lower levels may suggest decreased muscle mass.

Creatinine levels are also used with other factors, such as age and gender, to calculate the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). The eGFR is a more comprehensive indicator of kidney function, helps determine appropriate drug dosages, and is essential for assessing the potential toxicity of drugs on the kidneys.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Serum Creatinine in Allahabad


Frequently Asked Questions about Serum Creatinine in Allahabad

Q. What is a Serum Creatinine test used for?

A Serum Creatinine test is used to measure the levels of creatinine in the blood that helps determine how well your kidneys are functioning.

Q. How is a Serum Creatinine test performed?

A phlebotomist (a trained professional to perform blood draws) will clean your skin using an antiseptic alcohol cotton swab or wipe, and take a blood sample from your vein using a needle. The blood sample will be stored safely and transported to the laboratory for analysis.

Q. Is there any risk associated with a Serum Creatinine test?

There is usually no risk associated with this test. However, some people may feel a slight sting while the needle is pricked and may experience some bleeding that is normal and usually not bothersome. Rarely some people may experience slight swelling or bruising at the site of the needle prick. Applying ice 3-4 times a day for about a week may help reduce swelling and bruising. If it does not get better, consult your doctor.

Q. What are the signs and symptoms of abnormal creatinine levels?

The signs and symptoms that might indicate abnormal creatinine levels include belly pain, pain in the middle back, foamy or bloody urine, painful urination, swollen feet and ankles, puffiness around the eyes, and fatigue (tiredness).

Q. What are the possible physiological causes of high creatinine levels?

High creatinine levels are usually caused due to dehydration, increased protein intake, intense exercise, red meat consumption, or when taking creatine supplements, which are usually taken by athletes to enhance performance.

Always consult your doctor if you have high creatinine levels as they might be an indication of acute or chronic kidney failure, urinary tract obstruction, hypothyroidism, nephrotoxic drugs, shock, and congestive heart failure.
