• CRCL
  • However, in cases of severe renal dysfunction, the CrCl rate will overestimate the GFR because hypersecretion of creatinine by the proximal tubules will account for a larger fraction of the total creatinine cleared. (wikipedia.org)
  • excretion
  • Since the ACR depends not only on urinary albumin but also on urinary creatinine excretion, it will be affected by gender and age because muscle mass is lower in females than in males and decreases with age. (cdc.gov)
  • displaystyle
  • In enzymology, a creatinine deaminase (EC 3.5.4.21) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction creatinine + H2O ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } N-methylhydantoin + NH3 Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are creatinine and H2O, whereas its two products are N-methylhydantoin and NH3. (wikipedia.org)
  • picrate
  • The 1886 Jaffé reaction, in which creatinine is treated with an alkaline picrate solution to yield a red complex, is still the basis of most commonly used methods for measuring creatinine. (wikipedia.org)
  • measure
  • Although hydration and strenuous exercise prior to your blood draw can have a noticeable affect on your GFR reading (I measured .14 lower on my creatinine measure, from one month to the next, by following the hydrating advice as Cora has offered you). (healthboards.com)
  • A patient typically undergoes a creatinine urine test to measure the amount that is expelled from the body in urine. (wisegeek.com)
