What Is A Normal Creatinine Urine Level
No such thing: We don't publish a reference range as people would worry. The more muscle mass you have, the more creatinine you put out daily. The level in turn is also a function of how much water you drink -- whether the urine is concentrated or dilute. And there's no illness for which increased or decreased production is a marker. If you do find a published range, ignore it. ...Read more
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs.

Why is it so hard to find out normal urine creatinine and calcium levels for a 5 yr old if 3, 3 creatinine , 2.4 calcium..What is norm ? Shud i worry?
Worthless number: The total creatinine put out varies primarily with the total mass of skeletal muscle. You'll never find a "normal" value for either. The concentration is even more variable as it depends on how much water was drunk. The urine creatinine is measured only as something to compare with a semi-constant, the creatinine. People aren't numbers, and we do a disservice focusing on labs apart from history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
