Creatinine 2.20 €

A one-time blood collection fee of 6 € is added to the price.


  • Primary analysis for renal function assessment
  • High values indicate renal impairment, but may also occur in individuals with high muscle mass and after intense physical activity
  • Low levels of creatinine occur in individuals with low muscle mass or muscular diseases, and in cases of starvation

Creatinine is a by-product of muscle metabolism and is formed in the muscle tissue from creatine; it is typically removed through the kidneys. The amount of the generated creatinine directly depends on a person’s muscle mass.

Serum creatinine is suitable for renal impairment screening, and it helps to assess the intensity of kidney function: based on the creatinine result, in individuals over 18 years of age, an estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) is automatically calculated based on the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) formula, with eGFR expressed as mL/min/1.73 mfor standard body surface area. This formula does not account for the individual’s body mass.

It is important to know that eating meat up to 7 hours before giving blood may affect the result by approx. 10%. Low creatinine values may be caused by starvation or low muscle mass.
