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.

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.

To summarise, rising creatinine doesn't cause kidney damage. Kidney damage causes rising creatinine.

Moderation is the key word brah

As long as you're not drinking every day you'll be fine

>>61316894
Yep, what this guy said. That's why black people have higher creatinine upper limit, because in general they have higher muscle mass.

Yes 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

>>61317562
Hmmm lol this is alarming
>>
>>61315132
Yes its terrible, stop lifting weights asap or you're going to have accute liver failure.

That 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.

Only 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.
