BACKGROUND: Urinary concentrations of creatine and guanidinoacetic acid divided by creatinine are informative markers for cerebral creatine deficiency syndromes (CDSs).
The most common screening test for CDSs concurrently measures the urinary concentrations of creatinine (crn), creatine (CRE), and guanidinoacetic acid (GAA).
