Glomerular Filtration Rate

 Glomerular filtration rate is a test casted to check how well the kidneys are working. Precisely, it guesstimates how much blood passes through the glomeruli each minute. Glomeruli are the minute filters in the kidneys that sieve waste from the blood. The test is performed by collecting a blood sample and after collection the creatinine level in the blood sample is tested. Creatine is a biochemical that the body makes to stock energy, mostly to muscles.  The lab professional syndicates your blood creatinine level with several other factors to evaluate the Glomerular filtration rate. Different formulas and principals were used for adults and children in determining the Glomerular filtration rate.
