Question: diabetes from creatine


 enliven - Mon Apr 02, 2007 7:51 am

Seven years ago i developed type 2 diabetes. having changed doctors recently the new one believes i may have bought it on by using creatine as a supplement. i used it every day in the gym and it made me very strong. there were no warning on the pack about the continued use of this product. could this have bought on the diabetes?

User avatar I am not aware of any relationship to creatine causing diabetes. Creatine can increase the body's sensitivity to insulin which would essentially protect against diabetes.

Creatine can, however, increase the load on the kidneys that can cause some renal damage, especially when diabetes is already present.

Best wishes.
