I would like a second opinion. I have a creatinine meter

Customer Question

Hi, I would like a second opinion. I have a creatinine meter that seems accurate. My lab results yesterday were creatinine 79 umol/l and my meter was 74. Today all my readings were over 100. Can creatinine change that much?

normal creatinine can be from 50-110 umol

yes, creatinine can change up and down depending on how much fluid and water you are drinking and depending on how much exercise and muscle break down you have.

yes, creatinine can change that much
