Get a more intelligent doctor.
In fact I think most of the research on creatine and hearts is positive and not negative. Not to mention you already have creatine in your body and get it from some foods.
Still, get a more intelligent doctor.EvoMuse Products Rep

Some doctors dont have a problem with supplemental protein but with not knowing the additives in the blend.
Bring in the label and ask why it should be avoided.

Oh I forgot about you. You are training to become Mr. Olympia. Bro, there's a small possibility that on this path you've chosen, doctors may tell you that some unhealthy decisions are being made on your part. Just a heads up.

You don't have to worry about heart attacks and kidney/liver problems until you've been on gear for a decade or so. Not in your teens from protein and creatine.

As long as you are active, drink enough water, and are generally healthy, you are fine.

Leaving aside the unnecessary creatine-phobia, the advice that a 17yr old limit themselves to one shake a day and to eat real food is hardly ridiculous.

I dont trust any doctor that their solution is to disagree with anything that has been proven to be safe. Along with any doctor that their cure comes from a company that makes money off of people being sick.

My doctor told me the same.. But none of these doctors (I'm assuming your doc is a family practitioner) know anything about powdered protein.
I did have a few proteins in my urine that made my doc tell me to stop taking them.
The bottom line is if taken responsibly powdered protein is an amazing supplement. But of course real food is always better.

You are 17 years old, presenting with elevated BP with no apparent other causes (that you have told us).
Your doc's attempt to get you off of supplements--which, I must point out, are SUPPLEMENTS (you don't need them)--and on to regular food, is not outrageous.
As a high school coach, I don't advise that my athletes use creatine.
Unlike your doc, I don't believe that "it doesn't do anything", but I will agree that its ergogenic benefits are mixed and that, when dealing with a growing body, aren't entirely worth it.
Remember, your doc is in the business of getting you healthy--apparently she has some concerns on this front that should be heard out.

WTF are you guys talking about bulking too fast? I have never heard of someone saying that. Don't worry about your BP your young it will fix itself. Are you guys just saying he is gaining more fat instead of muscle? Even if he is who cares you can always cut fat later and he will learn next time.
