creatinine level

Postby dnsqueen » Mon Jan 30, 2006 5:40 am

We have recently moved from UK to Australia and the reading for creatinine levels are different. Not sure what calculation was used in UK and how to equate this to that given in Australia. The most recent creatinine level is .11 how does that equate to UK measurement? My child is renal transplant 8 years post. Many thanks

creatinine levels in Oz

Measuring creatinine:
Units in UK are called micromoles per Litre (µmol/L)
Units in Oz are called millimoles per Litre (mmol/L)

micro is 1 millionth and milli is 1 thousandth (spelling?)
therefore the difference between the two is just a factor of 1000

ie your child's creatinine of 0.11mmol/L is the same as 110 µmol/L which sounds pretty good to me!

Well done!
