Not at this age: Better to avoid before age 18, and better ask your doctor anyways before starting it, although no conclusive evidence that it is harmful, better to avoid before age 18, if you have kidney, or liver diseases or being diabetic, it might help some and not help others, goodluck

Is creatine safe for a 17 year old to take?

Is creatine safe for a 17 year old to take?

Yes, but be aware: Creatine is used by athletes to build up muscle mass. Use of it seems harmless but doubts still remain. Mayo clinic has mentioned that it may be associated with asthma in those allergic to it. Some have mentioned that it may cause kidney and liver damage. But not proven. Best would be to be moderate in its use as even good things in excess can be harmful. Look it up on Wikipedia for more info.

Creatine and kids: Creatine in moderation can be safe. Remember that it is a supplement so it is not regulated as strictly by the fda. There may be other minerals, metals, etc in the formulation that are not ideal for kids. In high doses creatine can cause kidney failure. Many teens think that it will help them bulk up, nothing will help them bulk up if they haven't gone through puberty.

Is it safe for a 16 year old to take creatine?

Is it safe for a 16 year old to take creatine?

Supplements are: Usually nothing more than empty promises. Creatine swells the muscles with water but doesn't make you stronger. No magic product makes working out easier. If you train properly, stay consistent, stay hydrated, and eat properly (with balanced proteins), you will see results. Special products are just a way of getting your money by feeding on your desire for quick results.

I am a 16 year old man diagnosed with Tachycardia. I am wondering if Creatine is safe for me to take. I have read many differing articles on the topic?

I am a 16 year old man diagnosed with Tachycardia. I am wondering if Creatine is safe for me to take. I have read many differing articles on the topic?

Tachycardia: Firstly it must be established what the cause of the tachycardia is. But to answer your question about creatine supplements I generally discourage their use because of the added burden on the kidneys to clear this substance from the blood stream

Is creatine supplements safe for me, a 16 year old boy to take? The protien supplement carnivor and musclepharm powder has creatine in it and I take it.

Is creatine supplements safe for me, a 16 year old boy to take? The protien supplement carnivor and musclepharm powder has creatine in it and I take it.

Careful.: Creatine supplements can be harmful on a number of levels. First they require a great deal of hydration once starting to use them. Second, None of the supplements are undergoing any degree of regulation on how they are prepared. What makes this more difficult is that they tend to be endorsed by word of mouth with peers, often causing yielding to peer pressure.

Is it safe to take creatine and multivitamin supplements while on accutane? I am an 18 year old male wanting to gain lean muscle mass.

Is it safe to take creatine and multivitamin supplements while on accutane? I am an 18 year old male wanting to gain lean muscle mass.

Safe but no benefit: The data on creatine remains controversial but at least it's safe. Same w/regards to multivitamins. Luckily, no interactions w/Accutane (isotretinoin) either. Best way to gain muscle, besides exercising regularly, is to eat healthy & get enough rest. Make sure you get enough protein 1-1.5g/lb body weight daily.
