Creatinine is an important constituent of muscles and is broken down to creatinine. Creatinine can also be converted to ATP as a source of energy. The daily production of creatine and creatinine, depends on the muscle mass of an individual, and does not vary much. Creatinine is excreted from the body by the kidneys. Serum creatinine level remains constant and within normal range in normally functioning kidneys.
