Cystatin C Blood Test

The Cystatin C Test is a test that is used to monitor kidney function. Cystatin C is a protein which is filtered through the kidney. A  high level of Cystatin C indicates that the kidney’s glomerular filtration rate is damaged.

Measurement of Cystatin C has been found to be a more accurate marker for kidney function that Creatinine.  People who suffer cirrhosis, obesity, malnourishment and reduced muscle mass should not use Creatinine level as an accurate marker for kidney function.

In cases of kidney disease, Cystatin  C levels have also been shown to come back abnormal earlier than Creatinine levels.

Cystatin C Blood Test is ordered when someone is experiencing symptoms of kidney disease or monitoring their kidney function, especially if they believe that a Creatinine test would not be accurate.
