Creatinine is the metabolic waste of muscle. Kidney has the function of removing wastes and toxins, which is completed by glomerulus and renal tubules. Glomerulus filters the fluid, wastes and some nutrients. Renal tubules reabsorb the nutrients which leak from glomerulus. However, a little creatinine is also reabsorbed by kidney tubules, which becomes the index of kidney function.
