Cystatin C

Cystatin C

Cystatin C is a protein that is made by your body's cells. When your kidneys are performing correctly, the level of cystatin C in your blood is kept at just the appropriate level. If you have a high amount of cystatin C in your blood, it could indicate that your kidneys aren't operating correctly.

A cystatin C blood test can assist your healthcare professional in determining your GFR (glomerular filtration rate). Your GFR number informs your doctor about how well your kidneys are functioning.

Why done? 

If you have a high level of cystatin C in your blood, a cystatin C blood test may be beneficial.

  • A previous kidney function test was inconclusive or required confirmation. Your doctor may do a cystatin C test to diagnose renal illness in this scenario.
  • You are obese, aged, or have a lot of muscle mass (such as a bodybuilder). GFR estimates based on cystatin C are less impacted by muscle mass or nutrition than GFR estimates based on creatinine.


You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
