Creatinine - Spot Urine Test

The Creatinine - Spot Urine Test measures the amount of creatinine in a single urine sample. Creatinine is a waste product produced by the muscles during the normal process of muscle breakdown. Healthy kidneys effectively 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 and can be a part of routine health check-ups or used to monitor existing kidney conditions.

  • Test Name Creatinine - Spot Urine Test
  • Sample Type Urine
  • Preparations Required No specific instructions required.
  • Report Time 4 Hours

Creatinine levels in the urine can fluctuate throughout the day, depending on various factors like muscle activity, hydration status, and medications. A spot urine test is a convenient way to check creatinine levels at a particular point in time. However, it is important to note that a single measurement might not be as informative as a 24-hour urine collection for assessing kidney function over an extended period.
