LP15416-8   Arginine
Arginine (symbol Arg or R) is an amino acid. The L-form (L-arginine) is one of the 20 most common natural amino acids. In mammals, arginine is classified as a conditionally essential amino acid, depending on the developmental stage and health status of the individuals. Infants are unable to effectively synthesize arginine, making it nutritionally essential for them. Adults, however, are able to synthesize arginine in the urea cycle. The body uses arginine for a variety of purposes, including boosting immune system function and improving blood flow. Arginine sources include diet, medication, and/or nutritional supplements. Dietary sources include meat, dairy products and fish. Source: Medline Plus, MedlinePlus: L-arginine

LP32035-5   Creatinine
Creatinine or creatine anhydride, is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle. The loss of water molecule from creatine results in the formation of creatinine. It is transferred to the kidneys by blood plasma, whereupon it is eliminated by glomular filtration and partial tubular excretion. Creatinine is usually produced at a fairly constant rate and measuring its serum level is a simple test. A rise in blood creatinine levels is observed only with marked damage to functioning nephrons; therefore this test is not suitable for detecting early kidney disease. Creatine and creatinine are metabolized in the kidneys, muscle, liver and pancreas.
