Enter the level of protein (mg/dl) and the level of creatinine (mg/dl) into the Protein to Creatinine Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Protein to Creatinine Ratio. 

Protein to Creatinine Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Protein to Creatinine Ratio. 

PTCR = P / C

  • Where PTCR is the Protein to Creatinine Ratio (protein:creatinine)
  • P is the level of protein (mg/dl) 
  • C is the level of creatinine (mg/dl) 

How to Calculate Protein to Creatinine Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Protein to Creatinine Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the level of protein (mg/dl). 
    • The level of protein (mg/dl) is given as: 40.
  2. Next, determine the level of creatinine (mg/dl). 
    • The level of creatinine (mg/dl) is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Protein to Creatinine Ratio using the equation above: 

PTCR = P / C

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

PTCR = 40 / 20 = 2:1 (protein:creatinine)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

level of protein (mg/dl) = 60

level of creatinine (mg/dl) = 70

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

PTCR = P / C = ?
