Abstract: Serum creatinine provides the most accurate and consistent estimation of GFR. However other biomarkers are now under study. Correct interpretation of serum creatinine extends beyond just knowing normal values for the specific laboratory. Serum creatinine must always be interpreted with respect to patient’s weight, age and sex. The patients included in the study were from both ICU and wards. Final sample size came to be 104 subjects of Acute Kidney Injury of varied etiology. In our study, the total number of patients in the Risk, Injury and Failure groups were- 28(26.9%), 32 (30.8%) and 44 (42.3%) patients respectively. Out of these, 23 (22.1%), 32 (30.8) and 35 (33.7%) of patients of the groups Risk, Injury and Failure had complete recovery. 5 patient each of risk and (4.8% each) and 9 patients (8.7%) of failure groups expired.
