Product Description

**NOTE: All Laboratory testing requires an authorizing physician in order to complete the laboratory testing and your order**

Cystatin C may be used as another option to creatinine and creatinine clearance to screen for and monitor kidney dysfunction in those with known or suspected kidney disease. It may be especially useful for example where creatinine measurement is not needed, for example, in those who have liver cirrhosis, are very obese, are malnourished, or have reduced muscle mass. Having a Cystatin C test done may also be beneficial in the early detection of kidney disease when other test results may still be normal and an affected person may have few, if any, symptoms.
