    00:00 So let's wrap up this part of the video series.

    00:03 Remember normal levels of creatinine in the blood or approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams for adult males.

    00:11 And females is going to be just a little bit lower 0.5 to 1.1 milligrams per deciliter in adult females.

    00:19 Serum creatinine can also help us provide an estimate of how well the kidneys are able to filter.

    00:25 Remember it's one part of the formula used to calculate the estimated glomerular filtration rate.

    00:32 When you have a patient who's creatinine is high, I want you to think through each one of these six possible causes chronic kidney disease, kidney obstruction, dehydration, high levels of dietary protein, intense exercise, and even certain medications.

    00:50 Thank you for watching this video today.
