Ccr Calculator,Calculating Creatinine Clearance Rate
|Doctors use creatinine test and creatinine clearance calculation to check how well your kidneys work.†This calculator provides an estimate of creatinine clearance according to the Cockcroft- Gault equation. It can also help you determine whether your your kidney function is normal.|

Everyone has creatinine in their bloodstream and urine. It is a waste chemical that comes from the normal wear and tear on muscles of the body. It could be filtered out of your blood by your kidneys. Creatinine clearance rate is the calculation of blood plasma cleared of
|creatinine per unit time. It based on a
creatinine test, also called a serum creatinine test. It is a rapid and
cost-effective method for the measurement of renal function.
A serum creatinine test is used to measure creatinine levels in your blood . Your doctor may ask you not to eat overnight before the test.
Nomal Creatinine Clearance Rate
For adults younger than 40,† reference ranges for†creatinine clearance†are as follows†:
Male: 107-139 mL/min or 1.78-2.32 mL/s (SI units)
Female: 87-107 mL/min or 1.45-1.78 mL/s (SI units)
For every decade after age 40, a normal test result is 6.5 mL/min less than the numbers above.Creatinine clearance rates go down as you age.
For newborns, the normal range is 40 to 65 mL/min.
Healthy kidneys filter creatinine out of the blood. A creatinine level of†higher than 1.1 for women and higher than 1.4 for men†may be an early sign that the kidneys are not working properly.
