This test is done to check the level of creatinine in a random, single urine sample.

  • Creatinine levels in the blood can be used as a measure of how well your kidneys are working.
  • The creatinine level of a single, random urine sample is typically only used with other tests to get a complete picture of the patients kidney function.

This test requires a single, random urine sample. Another test, which requires a twenty-four hour urine sample, may be recommended instead.

  • You will be told how to prepare for this test to help ensure accurate results.
  • Some medications may interfere with the test. Ask your healthcare provider if you need to stop taking any medications before the test.
  • Do not stop taking any medication unless your healthcare provider tells you to do so.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • What is the reason for the test? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, do I need the test?
