It's well known that people with increased muscle mass have higher levels of creatinine in their blood (also, higher protein diets also incrase creatinine). Doesn't this mean that bodybuilding/weight training is bad for kidneys long term? Pic rel is me, 125 mol/L creatinine (110 is the normal upper limit), I'm worried about my kidneys failing.
>>61315132You should be absolutely fine unless you're doing some other stupid shit like drinking or drugs
>>61315132Dont take oral steroids and stop drinking alcohol. You'll be fine, probably.
Just drink more water anon
>>61315260>>61315200So am I to just never drink alcohol again? Is it that bad?
>>61315132you look fine and healthy fucking moron, drink enough water and don't worry about stupid shit like that.
Creatine is simply a way of telling kidney health based on trends, using it by itself means fuck all. It's not the best method for measuring kidney health but it's the cheapest and most readily available way. It's biggest downfall is results are heavily affected by how much muscle you carry.A static Creatinine at 125 in a muscular man won't mean shit while a Cr jumping from 50 to 125 in a frail old lady might. It's all about context and trends.
>>61316894To summarise, rising creatinine doesn't cause kidney damage. Kidney damage causes rising creatinine. >t. ED Doc
>>61315367Moderation is the key word brahAs long as you're not drinking every day you'll be fine
>>61316894Yep, what this guy said. That's why black people have higher creatinine upper limit, because in general they have higher muscle mass.
>>61316904Can you give me boner pills
>>61316894>>61316959so should I be fine?
>>61316959You can tell a city-slicker by his fancy negro-worship.
>>61316894Yes creatinine levels are an indicator of kidney problems, its not really the cause of kidney problems. Above normal levels in a muscular man is expected.
As long as your piss isn't stupidly foamy you're alright
>>61317562Hmmm lol this is alarming
>>61315132Yes its terrible, stop lifting weights asap or you're going to have accute liver failure.
>>61315132That happens often that peole who exercisse have elevated creatinine levels. But that does not mean something with your kidneys is bad. When you work out muscle gets wrecked. Body decomposes defect muscles and the recycled stuff goes into the bloodstream. But thats not worrysome cause the body will soon reabsorb that in muscles and nerves.Mire. keep doing what you do.
>>61317901Only bad for Crossfit drones who get rhabdomyolysis, my cousin worked as a nurse and the meme is real, he did get patients who wrecked their kidneys for a meme workout, he told me one was a woman in her early 20s, because she was young she was able to "fully" recover.
>>61315132Decades of research say its literally nothing
