    myself and im sure the rest of cbb would like to say good luck and hopefully its just a common level fluctuation
    I am sure things will be fine.. I mean it is pretty common for bodybuilders that use creatine to have higher than normal creatinine values.

    Thanks for the support though...means a lot...

    Yup, that's absolutely a sign. I'm glad you made this thread man. I've believed this for a long time but I think people use way too much protein than they need to and it will have an effect on their kidneys over their lifetime.

    Let us know what your values are after your re-test.

    I re-tested today...about 3 weeks off creatine, have not trained since last friday and have not had any shakes since then either. Lowered my protein intake also the last few days and increased my water. The only thing i have continued to take is test and small dose of tren E i started a couple weeks ago just before i got my test results back. If my results from today come back poorly or worse even, i am dropping the tren, lowering my test dose and getting more blood work done in 3-4 weeks.

    Anyways, i should have my results back monday or tuesday, so i will update this thread then...

    that's good although I wonder if you will go back to your old habits if the test comes out better?

    Not entirely...i will not take creatine anymore...I will limit my liquid protein intake, as i think large amounts of fast digesting protein can put a strain on already stressed kidneys. Whey protein digests pretty fast and i usually take in about 60 grams or more per serving...any protein not used for muscle repair or energy will go straight through the kidneys. I will limit my liquid protein to 2-3 shakes per day, of only 40 grams per shake.

    Also, even though i rarely use orals for very short durations (3-4 weeks), i may entirely avoid them now.

    Make sure you insist on these tests you need. do your research, and be an informed patient. doctors will respect you more, and listen to what you have to say - at least the good ones will. You might also suggest he refers you to a kidney specialist now, because you are going to be probably waiting for 6 months anyways...this is canada afterall

    F**k me. got another call from the doctor today. why wont they just leave me alone?!

    the 2nd 24h creatinine clearance/protein urine test came up off again. Bloodwork was good last time (eGFR from 52->72). But that damn proteinuria has got me again.

    Anyone else have these troubles? Or are Gus and I the only ones?

    Got the results back today...eGFR is at 54 (down from 56), creatinine at 132!!! My kidneys are getting worse! **** me, i did not train for 5 days before the test, no protein shakes, lower protein diet, no creatine, no anti-inflammatory drugs. But i was still on low dose tren E for this test, no more though...i think it is the tren E that effected this blood test. Although someone with healthy kidneys may not have problems with tren, i now think that anyone with compromised kidney function should steer clear of tren. I have not taken any tren since last week though and i will get another blood test in 3-4 weeks, until then, i have an ultra-sound scheduled for next week on my kidneys, bladder and lower abdomen.
