Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Side Effects
Hello Dr, I'm 28 years male weigth 70 kgs and height 5ft 7 inch. I'm planning to take whey protein is it ok to take or it have any side effects p?
Controversial: There is much debate about whey protein, derived from dairy, regarding its effects on health. I don't believe one should get protein from dairy and prefer non-animal sources like quinoa, nuts and beans. I also like wild salmon for protein and mostly healthy fats. Books like the china study demonize whey and claim it causes cancer and autoimmune disease. No one knows for sure so use other sources. ...Read more
Stay hydrated: A danger of creatine is kidney failure. Do not take more than directed and do not take the loading dose for a prolonged period. Stay hydrated! Some baseball players were hospitalized from excess creatine use causing renal shutdown. Whey protein is generally safe but excess protein is also hard on the kidneys. Again drink plenty of water. ...Read more
Yes: The side effects are usually GI issues. Stay within recommended daily amounts. ...Read more
Kidney problems: Whey protein is a milk derivative. If you are lactose intolerant this will not help you build muscle b/c it will lead to bloating and abdominal pain. If you have no lactose intolerance, it is a good source of protein. Men need about 1.2-1.7g/kg/daily of protein to help build muscle mass. Creatine builds muscle but with all protein you MUST drink alot of water since it is hard on the kidneys. ...Read more
Not really: Rarely it can cause minor GI issues such as bloating or gas. ...Read more
In general what are the side effects of taking whey protein? After long term and short term use? For bodybuilding?
Does the whey protein have any long term side effect? And just to mention I'm just taking 50 g after workout only ... So what are the side effects?
listen to your body: It is a processed food. A high protein diet from processed food is acidic. It is best taken with lots of fresh green vegetables and fruit which provide fresh water. Good essential fatty acids are needed and slow carbs from anti-inflammatory grains. If taken in that way and it still causes symptoms, don't use. ...Read more
Whey protein: Whey protein is good for you but please do not rely on it as a way of replacing a good diet. The shakes can supplement the other protein, fat, and carbs you eat. Please check out the product to see if the whey comes from grass fed/free-range cattle or penned up cattle w/antibiotics. Avoid the latter. Peace and good health. I am not familiar w/the particular brand you mention. ...Read more
Any side effects of protein supplements like whey protein? And by the way, are these supplements effective?
Hi I'm aymen 19 years old 79kg weight I start bodybuilding workouts I wanna now if I can use whey protein and if he has a side effects?
Body building/ Whey: Many of the powders/supplements contain whey as the source of extra protein as a substrate for muscle and body building. Generally they are safe. If a person doesn't exercise appropriately, it can be just a source of extra calories. So taking extra whey does not mean you will build muscle alone. Vegan/vegetarian options exist, with a soy base. I have seen new allergic reactions to whey as well. ...Read more
I am 23 old sir, and I am going to gym,my trainer suggested me to take whey protein supplyment, i am afraid of side effects is it anything like that?
Whey supplements: Are suggested by your trainer to increase your body's muscle building components. Meat can also do this, but you might not eat meat (if you are vegetarian) and whey is more portable and also will provide more hydration. I don't think you need to be too concerned about side effects from whey...as it comes from milk. ...Read more
Hello . Wat r the side effects of protein suppliments like whey protein for body building ... Help?
I'm drinking whey protein after I work out. Can I still consume alcohol? Does it have any side effects?
I see no conflict: I see no conflict between protein shakes after workouts and alcohol consumption. But it's a matter of degree. How much alcohol we talking about? Because moderate alcohol intake is pretty safe. But excessive alcohol consumption definitely has side effects, including nutritional depletion. ...Read more

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 much 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. ...Read more
I am taking 60 grams of whey protein with 5 g of creatine daily while going to gym. Does these supplements have any side effects?
Not usually: They are both "relatively" natural. Creatine is made in the body and passes into muscles where it is stored as creatine phosphate, a form of energy storage. It is lost from muscle and excreted in urine as creatinine. I do not know of any clinical trials that test whether your physical (and mental) capacity is improved. ...Read more
Hi doctors. Recently I started bodybuilding. Just want to know will supplements like whey protein and BCAAs have any serious side effects?
Hola doctor! Can you suggest me a brand of body building supplement with best results and no side effects? Want to buy whey protein.
None.: Best source of protein with a protein effiency index of 100%! If you have liver or kidney disease, it might be harmful. Otherwise, beneficial for protein supplementation, both for athletes, those on low carb, low fat, and low calrie diets (since you don't get carbs and fats), and for the elderly, who frequently don't get enough! ...Read more
Are there any side effects of protein "shake"(whey brand)? I'm taking it three times a week when I play in gym
Safe: Whey protein isolates are generally very safe to ingest, especially at the amount you are using it. There is a potential for some abdominal distress if you take too much at once, but this is also rather rare. Assuming you have no other medical issues that would preclude you from processing protein, you should be just fine with the shakes. ...Read more
It's ok to drink whey protein without exercise?just only push up. No side effect when you drink without exercise?
Yes it's fine: Protein drinks typically have less than 30g protein per serving, which is perfectly safe as a snack or meal supplement. People are cautioned against drinking too many protein shakes, because large servings of unbalanced protein can overload your kidneys. Consider eating protein in egg, meat or tofu form. It tends to be MUCH cheaper than protein shakes, ounce for ounce! ...Read more
