I'm a 24 year old man, healthy, and have been taking a preworkout formula that contains Creatine. It's been working great, however I just want to confirm it's safe? I drink plenty of water, take the minimum amount, and occasionally have alcohol
I took some creatine this morning and my body feels Hot I keep drinking water. I'm also a little nervous and having anxiety?
Not enough info but: Generally speaking, creatine itself is not known to increase body temperature and cause one to feel "hot". If you are taking a product that contains creatine in addition to other supplements, perhaps one or more of the other compounds may be the issue. Furthermore, I would recommend only Creapure creatine monohydrate. Don't fall for all the other creatines with useless bells and whistles. ...Read more
My kidney area (or kidney) would sometimes pulse. I have used creatine but been off of it for about a year. I drink plenty of water. Causes?
More likely muscular: If by "kidney area" you mean mid-back to one side or the other, I would think that it is more likely that you're feeling symptoms related to the musculature of the back, e.g., muscle spasm, than due to the kidney. Kidney's can hurt, when swollen or inflamed, e.g., when infected, but this is less likely to be an intermittent problem. A simple urine test can rule out infection. ...Read more

Do you have to drink water with haylanuric acid? Will it dehydrate you if you don't like creatine supplements?
I did blood test and creatine kinase was very high, I think more than 1000. I am going to the gym 4, 5 days a week. Should I drink more water or?
Normal: Strenuous muscular exercise elevates the CK - this is NOT abnormal. Drinking water is certainly a healthy thing to do when you're sweating, but it will not have any effect on your CK. Don't worry about it. (A CK of 10, 000 would be significant) ...Read more

Gastritis/gallbladder issues. Pain in gut. Labs show BUN 28, Creatine Bun ratio 30.30.told to drink water. Should I worry? Gallbladder surgery soon.
Would not worry. Likely due or dehydration as most people do not drink enough fluids. If other labs like creatinine alone are OK (which it appears to be as BUN is 28 and the ratio is 30 so creatinine has to be < 1) and liver functions are OK, don't worry. BUN is slightly higher in older individuals.. Good luck with surgery.

Can I take creatine, adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and Accutane together? I drink a lot of water and workout everyday. I play football and baseball.
Not advisable: While there are no contraindications to these drugs combined, it is not a great idea to stress your kidneys so much. Accutane can cause kidney problems as can creatine, so combining the two will likely increase the risk, even if you drink a lot of fluids. I'd talk to your doctor, but I would also tell you to avoid the creatine if you were my patient. ...Read more
Can I take creatine, adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and Accutane at the same time? I drink a lot of water already for sports. I play football and baseball/workout.
Not Recommended: As a pediatrician I need to caution you about the use of creatine - we still don't know what the potential long-term effects are. It is really discouraged in growing teens. Taking the combination you mentioned puts a lot of stress on your kidneys, even if you are drinking "plenty" of water. ...Read more

Kidneys and Protein: There is no easy answer to this question. However, significant amounts of consumed protein or Amino Acids can offer a significant solute load to the kidneys. That, along with inadequate hydration, can put one at risk for renal (kidney) damage. There have been numerous case reports of young athletes going into renal failure due to high protein consumption and inadequate hydration. ...Read more
I am informed creatine retains more water in your muscles, which made me think it could be bad for prostatis?
No: Excessive of creatinine use and muscle mass will create a chronic dehydrated state unless you drink plenty of water with it. It will also put an extra burden on your kidney. It has no effect on prostate gland but concentrated urine may mimics prostatitis symptoms. If you decide to take it, drink plenty of water (>3 liter/d), check kidney function and CPK periodically.

I got my blood tested, n my creatine phosphokinase is high (39 to 308) mine is 732.The nyt b4 I got da test I drink 3 beers. Is that a factor or not? Ty
3 beers would not: Do it. CPK is an enzyme that muscle cells contain. So if you had recent muscle damage or a bruise, it will raise its value. Sometimes statin class of drugs that lowers cholesterol can raise cpk. Ask the doctor who ordered the test why he got it and what the abnormality means to you. ...Read more
