What do my creatinine clearance test results mean?

The reported ranges of creatinine clearance test results (usually measured as milliliters per minute) vary slightly between laboratories, depending on the different measurements or test samples. The normal range, however, is between 97 and 137 ml/min for males, and 88 and 128 ml/min for females.

What does an abnormal creatinine clearance test mean?

An abnormal creatinine clearance test means that creatinine is not filtered properly by your kidneys. When kidneys slow down, creatinine levels increase. This means you could be at risk of having kidney problems.

You should talk to your doctor about what your test results mean.
