4 doctors agree
In brief: Not sure
Studies are very inconsistent on creatine intake especially in young athletes going to the gym. While a study done in 2005 by pline et al showed no effect on kidney function, creatine role and influence in elderly and people with impaired kidney function is still unknown.
I personally do not recommend it to my patients
