Creatinine (CRE)

Creatinine is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscles and depends on a person’s muscle mass. Creatinine is normally produced at a fairly constant rate (approx. 1 g of creatinine is excreted per day). Therefore, the creatinine concentration can be used to interpret results of spontaneously voided urine samples, which show variable dilutions, in a more consistent way.
