Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Creatinine is a waste product that is produced by the muscles and filtered out of the blood by the kidneys. The creatinine level in the blood is a measure of how well the kidneys are working.

A creatinine test can be used to detect kidney damage or dysfunction. The test may also be used to monitor kidney function in people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) or those who are at risk for CKD.

If your creatinine levels are high, it could be a sign of renal failure or damage. Other signs of high creatinine levels include:

-Shortness of breath

-Swelling in the feet, ankles, legs, or abdomen

-Nausea and vomiting

-Muscle cramps or weakness

-Changes in urine output or appearance

Make sure you are drinking enough water. You should aim for eight glasses of water a day. Another is to avoid foods like organ meats, anchovies, herring, and beer. Additionally, you ought to consume fewer proteins. Finally, exercise regularly.

Generally speaking, a creatinine level of 2.0 mg/dL or higher is considered an indicator of kidney failure.

There are many causes of high creatinine levels, but the most common cause is kidney damage or disease. Other causes of high creatinine include dehydration, strenuous exercise, and certain medications.

  • A rise in blood creatinine levels.

I have to get the creatinine test done every three months. I find Max Lab's services very convenient and it saves me time from having to visit a lab and wait for hours for the results. I also like their pricing which is very affordable.


I had a creatinine test done at Max Lab. I can safely say that they are the best in the industry and are very professional. The lab staff was knowledgeable and took care of me from beginning to end. Moreover, you can download the report online within 24 to 48 hours of sample collection.


I had a lot of fuzzy symptoms and was really worried. I went to the Max Lab website and they were able to give me the creatinine test, surprisingly the reports were available within 24 hours, and it was normal. I am so relieved! I will always use Max Lab in the future.
