• 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)
  • 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)
  • The normal serum creatinine (sCr) varies with the subject's body muscle mass and with the technique used to measure it. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscular
  • Several medical conditions in addition to diabetes are capable of causing increased creatinine levels in the bloodstream, including muscular dystrophy and glomerulonephritis. (wisegeek.com)
