    For those taking creatine

    How many days before blood work stop taking it so it doesn’t mess with creatinine results? I haven’t used creatine for years. Will give it a go again but my creatinine is usually on the higher side (very muscular) so don’t wanna mess with creatinine results

    Kidney Function 101

    What Is Creatinine and Creatinine Clearance? Creatinine is a waste product that is produced continuously during normal muscle breakdown. The kidneys filter creatinine from the blood into the urine, and reabsorb almost none of it. The amount of blood the kidneys can make creatinine-free each...
