No: There are no direct interactions between alcohol and protein powder, but it doesn't sound like a very palatable cocktail. :-) also if you have liver failure from drinking too much alcohol, you need to be careful about the amount of protein you consume.

Gain muscle?: Do you want to gain muscle or gain fat or a reasonable amount of both? Protein powder isn't the answer. You need to take in more calories than presently and I suggest it from healthy foods, like nuts- whole grains etc- you also need to challenge your body to increase the muscle through exercise- resistance training.

Are there any side effects to taking whey protein powder? I'm about to start taking it and am wondering if there are any adverse effects?

Are there any side effects to taking whey protein powder? I'm about to start taking it and am wondering if there are any adverse effects?

Whey protein powder: Contains very little lactose and so many lactose intolerant folks can use it w/out issue. If you can't, there are lactose free whey protein powders on the market. Make sure it is from free range cattle rather than cows penned up and fed hormones and antibiotics. Peace and good health.

Hi I am 16 years old I take protein powder like muscle pharm combat take enough protein per day, is it has any side effects on height growth?

Protein powders: The problem with all these protein powder is that we don't know the long term effects on the body of a growing individual. You might grow 1/4 of an inch more at the expense of going into liver or kidney failure. Do you think its worth it?

Hemp protein powder replace whey protein to gain muscle, what to do?

Any pure protein....: ...powder is protein. It's what else that's added 2 it that needs watching. Read labels carefully & if U don't understand what's been added, ask Ur PCP or a dietitian. 2 much protein will challenge Ur kidneys, so more is not always better. U need 50gms/day generally. Add supplement as U exercise especially in weight training.U have bbetter dose control with powered rather than capsules or pills.

Post prandial: For starters decrease your insulin by 20%. If you are having hypoglycemia without taking any meds for diabetes (insulin or tablets) you need to see an endocrinologist as soon as possible.
