What is a normal urine creatinine level?

What is a normal urine creatinine 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

High creatinine level in 24h urine but normal in blood work. What can that be from pls.

Here are 2 causes: Here are two possibilities: 1. You collected more than 24 hours' urine. This would most likely happen if you collected the first morning urine on both the starting and finishing day. 2. You have a large muscle mass. Creatinine is a muscle breakdown product, and people with large muscle mass excrete more creatinine in urine as a result. ...Read more

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 more
