High creatinine levels can indicate a range of underlying health conditions, including kidney infection and kidney failure and heprtantion (high blood pressure). Therefore, Hypertension is when the pressure in the blood vessels is too high (140/90 mmHg or higher). It is common but can be serious if not treated well. A higher than normal level may be due to: Blocked urinary tract. Kidney problems, such as kidney damage or failure, infection, or reduced blood flow. Loss of body fluid (dehydration). The creatinine blood test measures the level of creatinine in the blood. This test is done to see how well the kidneys are working. Creatinine can also be measured with a urine and Saliva test. The aim of the study was to determine and assess laboratory Screening test to the effect of abnormal creatinine level among hypertensive patients in some selected Hospitals Somalia. The Cross sectional Study was done in 430 samples out of 150 were randomly selected attended: Kalkaal Hospital (42/430), Somalia Sudanese Hospital (47/430) and Benadir Hospital (61/430) Samples in Mogadishu Somalia. The study period were From February to July 2023 respectively selected studied the hospital records and documented the demographic data of patients with hypertension which were demarcated as blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg. The hypertensive patients were classified into the normal or elevated serum creatinine (>135 μl/l) groups. One hundred and fifty hypertensive patients with a mean age of 43.2 years and a male to female ratio of 1:1.1 were studied. A normal result is 0.7 to 1.3 mg/dL (61.9 to 114.9 µl/L) for men and 0.6 to 1.1 mg/dL (53 to 97.2 µl/L) for women. The mean serum creatinine was 289.2 +/- 309.88 μl/l with 45.5 % of the patients having elevated serum creatinine. The alteration in age between the normal raised creatinine groups was not significant. This study showed that there is a significant optimistic relationship between blood serum and creatinine. Thus, the creatinine levels can be used non-invasively to detect serum and creatinine levels respectively cause in renal disease and diabetic and hypertensive nephropathy cases. Therefore, the presence of creatinine level in blood serum were 13.5% for hypertensive patients attending the hospitals and meanwhile preventive measure were immediately needed so as to reduce the damages.
