1320: Creatinine Print View
Creatinine SP  view ref range  mg/dL 
Glomerular Filtration Rate CALC  > 59  mL/min/1.73m2 

PRIMARY
1 Serum 1 (0.5) mL   Frozen - 28 Day(s)/Refrigerated - 7 Day(s)/Room Temperature - 7 Day(s)  
ALTERNATE
  Plasma Heparinized 1 (0.5) mL   Frozen - 28 Day(s)/Room Temperature - 7 Day(s)/Refrigerated - 7 Day(s)  

Serum creatinine is useful in the evaluation of kidney function and in monitoring renal dialysis. A serum creatinine result within the reference range does not rule out renal function impairment: serum creatinine is not sensitive to early renal damage since it varies with age, gender and ethnic background. The impact of these variables can be reduced by an estimation of the glomerular filtration rate using an equation that includes serum creatinine, age and gender.
