If there is a trouble with your kidneys, creatinine can develop in the blood and less will be released in urine. It can be a sign of kidney disease if blood and/or urine creatinine degrees are not normal. Other names: blood creatinine, product creatinine, urine creatinine A creatinine test is used to see if your kidneys are working normally. It's often purchased together with another kidney test called blood urea nitrogen or as part of an extensive metabolic panel.
