The creatinine clearance is a measure of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), which is, the volume of filtrate made by the kidneys per minute. The creatinine clearance is calculated after measuring the volume of urine passed in 24 hours and the urine and serum creatinine levels. A correction factor is used for body size.
The results you receive from this tool are for informational purposes only and should not be the basis of your medical decision making. Consult your physician to determine the medical implications of any tests you take.
Average range of creatinine clearance for healthy adults is:
- Males: 97 to 137 ml/min.
- Females: 88 to 128 ml/min.
- Note: ml/min. = milliliters per minute
What the ranges could implicate?
Increased creatinine clearance could indicate:
- Vigorous Exercise
Decreased creatinine clearance could indicate:
- Renal damage
- Acute tubular necrosis
- Congestive cardiac failure
- Acute renal failure
- Bilateral obstructive uropathy
- Chronic renal failure
- End stage renal disease
