Cystatin C

Test ID: 

702899

CPT code:

82610

Clinical Use:

Since it is formed at a constant rate and freely filtered by the healthy kidney, cystatin C is a good marker of renal function. Serum concentrations of cystatin C are almost totally dependent on glomerular filtration rate (GFR). A reduction in GFR causes a rise in the concentration of cystatin C.
