Serum creatinine test is a vital test that determines how well your kidneys are working. Creatinine is the waste product produced through the breakdown of muscle and protein. It is the function of the kidneys to filter it out from blood and excrete it out through urine. 

A Creatinine blood test is done to ascertain the renal function. If the kidneys’ ability to filter out the creatinine is affected, then its levels rise in the blood. The accumulation of this waste chemical in the blood can lead to swelling of the body, especially face and feet, vomitings and decreased urine output. Low levels of serum creatinine indicate low muscle mass. A Creatinine blood test will help the doctor to take measures to improve your kidneys’ health. 

Apollo 24|7’s serum creatinine test prices are kept competitive. 

Who should get the creatinine test done? 

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
