What is creatinine?
Creatinine is a chemical waste product of protein which is a source of amino acid basically made and stored in the liver. Creatinine is created by the normal muscle metabolism. The kidney helps in removing it from the blood in the form of urine. A low creatinine serum can eventually result in kidney problems.
The symptoms with low creatinine serum may depend upon the underlying condition. There are many reasons that can cause low creatinine levels, such as:
- Muscular dystrophy is a kind of muscle disease which results in muscle weakness, muscle stiffness and pain and decreased mobility
- A poor liver function can interfere with creatinine production which can cause low creatinine level. The signs that are visible during kidney disease are abdominal pain, swelling, jaundice and blood in stool
- There can be excess water loss, pregnancy and excess water intake and medications
- Low muscle mass can result in the low level of chemical waste in the body
- Old people suffer from low muscle mass so as they age it can result in the condition of malnutrition.
