I have adpkd 24 y/o and trying to gain muscle. My creatine clearance is 87ml/min BUN and creatinine are normal. How much protein can I take in grams?

In brief: As you wish

There is no limit on how much protein you can eat.
Some cowboy cultures have lived on nothing but meat and suffered no bad effects. Just because some sick people must restrict protein (or gluten, or beer, or many other things) doesn't mean it's wise for you. You do need to know that more than 1 gm of protein daily per pound you weigh is probably wasted even for bodybuilding.
