    Please, please, please be careful with creatine! So many young athlete's and body builders have no idea about the damage this can cause. Now more than ever doctors are finding extreme creatine levels in young adults, this is a direct link to CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease).
    While creatine is great to build a little extra strength it can be a major issue in the long run when your kidneys start. I definitely recommend getting a full micronutrient test every 12-24 months to see just what you are lacking, then you can have a game plan to move forward with.
    Hope this helps atleast one lost soul keep the functions of their kidneys.

    This is a question not a rebuttal nor an attack of any kind. Is there any research that either suggests or proves that consuming creatine leads to an impaired kidney function in healthy individuals. If so, can some one please direct me to it.

    Thanks

    I did a quick Google search and found "inconclusive" scientific data about the kidney damage caused by creatine. The article at sportsci.org has scientific backing and states that there was no correlation between creatine use and kidney problems.

    Other articles do express that creatinine levels in urine and blood are directly related to how much strain is put on the kidneys and whether an excess of creatine is being consumed or not. There are plenty of such articles at livestrong.com.

    I would stick to the old adage about no excess being good for the organism. Stick to the dosage recommended by the manufacturer and if any damage is noticed, discontinue use.
