What Does Creatinine Mean?
Creatinine is a protein waste product that is generated by muscle metabolism and later disposed by the kidneys. Creatinine is closely related with muscle mass and kidney function since it is disposed of at a constant rate. Levels of creatinine can determine different health conditions including muscle injury or impaired kidney functions. In the context of occupational health and safety, testing for creatinine levels will determine the general health of employees in a determined worksite.
