Creatinine clearance is defined as the volume of plasma from which creatinine is completely cleared/min by the kidneys. Creatinine clearance (C) is expressed mathematically as C = UV/P
  • U = Concentration of creatinine in urine/dl

  • P = Concentration of creatinine in plasma/dl

  • V = Volume of urine exerted (ml/min)
