Creatinine - 24 Hours Urinary Test

The Creatinine - 24 Hours Urinary Test measures the amount of creatinine excreted in the urine over a 24-hour period. Creatinine is a waste product produced by the muscles through the natural process of muscle breakdown. Healthy kidneys efficiently filter creatinine from the blood, and it is then eliminated from the body through the urine. This test helps in evaluating the kidneys' ability to filter waste products from the blood.
