Understanding Serum Creatinine in Lucknow

What is Serum Creatinine in Lucknow?

Serum Creatinine test measures the level of creatinine in the blood and is available at an affordable price in Lucknow 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 useful 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 by 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 from the blood and releasing it into the urine. Therefore, blood creatinine levels can be an indicator to know how well the kidneys are working.
