Creatinine Clearance is a medical calculation used to estimate kidney function by measuring the rate at which the kidneys clear creatinine from the blood. Creatinine is a waste product that is generated from normal muscle metabolism and is excreted by the kidneys. Since the production rate of creatinine is relatively constant, its clearance rate can be used as an indicator of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), which is a measure of how well the kidneys are filtering waste products from the blood.
