What is Creatinine?

The creatinine blood test is used along with a BUN (blood urea nitrogen) test to assess kidney function. If the creatinine and BUN tests are found to be abnormal or if you have an underlying disease, such as diabetes, that is known to affect the kidneys, then these two tests may be used to monitor the progress of kidney dysfunction and the effectiveness of treatment.
