In brief: Varies

Although serum creatinine is routinely tested when blood chemistry is ordered, it is not a standardized test (i.
e. different labs will give a slightly different numerical values & direct comparison of values from such labs is not meaningful). Frequently, normal serum creatinine ranges from 0.8 to 1.3 mg/dl. However, other factors such as degree of hydration and the muscle mass of the patient.
