Purpose: To study the effects of 8-week creatine monohydrate (CrM) supplementation on blood and urinary clinical health markers in football players. Methods: 14 football players were randomly assigned in a double-blinded fashion to Cre (n = 7) or Pla (n = 7) group. The Cre group ingested 15 g/day of CrM for 7 days and 3 g/day for the remaining 49 days, whereas the Pla group ingested maltodextrin following the same protocol. Football-specific training was performed during the study. Total body… Expand
Effect of Creatine Supplementation on the Airways of Youth Elite Soccer Players
TLDR
On the basis of the observed trends and medium to large effect sizes, it cannot exclude that creatine supplementation has an adverse effect on the airways of elite athletes, particularly in those with allergic sensitization. Expand
Effect of short-term creatine monohydrate supplementation on indirect markers of cellular damage in young soccer players
TLDR
It can be concluded that CrM loading probably have significant adverse effects on serum indirect markers of cellular damage, and more research will be needed to determine effect of the short and long-term Cr supplementation on the other indirect marker of cellular damages in the future. Expand
LONGITUDINAL FOLLOW-UP OF CREATINE KINASE AND MARKERS OF RENAL FUNCTION IN MALE BASKETBALL PLAYERS
TLDR
Elevated levels of CK induced by sport-specific activities are not associated with changes in renal function despite the use of frequent and intense physical loads in male professional basketball players. Expand
Effects of creatine supplementation in taekwondo practitioners.
TLDR
Cr supplementation may increase fat mass and serum triglycerides concentration in young male TKD practitioners without improvement in anaerobic power, but athletes should be careful when they want to loss fat. Expand
Three Weeks of Creatine Monohydrate Supplementation Affects Dihydrotestosterone to Testosterone Ratio in College-Aged Rugby Players
TLDR
Creatine supplementation may, in part, act through an increased rate of conversion of T to DHT, particularly in relation to dihydrotestosterone, and therefore the long-term clinical safety cannot be guaranteed. Expand
Effects of Oral Creatine Supplementation with Different Doses on the Biochemical Markers of Liver, Kidney and Testis in Swimming Trained Male Rats
Background & objectives: The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of oral creatine supplementation on biochemical markers of liver, kidney and testis in the male rats underExpand
Assessment of Creatine in Sports Products
TLDR
The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (Vitenskapskomiteen for mattrygghet, VKM) has at the request of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet) conducted an assessment of creatine in sports products, supporting the EFSA conclusion that supplementation of creatine in doses below 3 g/day is unlikely to pose any risks if the purity of the creatine compound is adequate.

Effects of Creatine Supplementation on Renal Function: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
The findings indicate that creatine supplementation does not induce renal damage in the studied amounts and durations. Expand
The Effects of Long-Term Magnesium Creatine Chelate Supplementation on Repeated Sprint Ability (RAST) in Elite Soccer Players
TLDR
The long timeframe, i.e., 16 weeks, of the low dose of magnesium creatine chelate supplementation improved the RAST results in the SG, and despite the long period of MgCr-C supplementation, the creatinine level in theSG reached higher but still reference values. Expand
International Society of Sports Nutrition position stand: safety and efficacy of creatine supplementation in exercise, sport, and medicine
TLDR
An update to the current literature regarding the role and safety of creatine supplementation in exercise, sport, and medicine is provided and the position stand of International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) is updated. Expand

Long-term creatine supplementation does not significantly affect clinical markers of health in athletes
TLDR
Results indicate that long-term creatine supplementation (up to 21-months) does not appear to adversely effect markers of health status in athletes undergoing intense training in comparison to athletes who do not take creatine. Expand
Creatine supplementation--part I: performance, clinical chemistry, and muscle volume.
TLDR
Cr supplementation is effective in improving short-term performance, and the methods used show no detrimental side effects with this supplementation protocol. Expand
Effects of creatine supplementation on body composition, strength, and sprint performance.
TLDR
The addition of creatine to the glucose/taurine/electrolyte supplement promoted greater gains in fat/bone-free mass, isotonic lifting volume, and sprint performance during intense resistance/agility training. Expand
Creatine Supplementation Increases Total Body Water Without Altering Fluid Distribution.
TLDR
The Cr supplementation protocol was effective for increasing muscle Cr concentrations, body mass, and TBW; however, fluid distribution was not changed. Expand
Risk assessment of the potential side effects of long–term creatine supplementation in team sport athletes
TLDR
The data shows that low–dose supplementation with creatine monohydrate did not produce laboratory abnormalities for the majority of the parameters tested, and plasma concentrations of all clinical parameters did not alter significantly during the analyzed time frames of creatine supplementation. Expand
Acute creatine loading increases fat-free mass, but does not affect blood pressure, plasma creatinine, or CK activity in men and women.
TLDR
Findings suggest that acute CrM administration does not affect blood pressure, renal function, or plasma CK activity, but increases FFM, and may be greater in men as compared with that in women. Expand
Long-term oral creatine supplementation does not impair renal function in healthy athletes.
TLDR
There were no statistical differences between the control group and the creatine consumer group for plasma contents and urine excretion rates for creatinine, urea, and albumin, and clearances of these compounds did not differ between the two groups. Expand
Creatine Supplementation Affects Glucose Homeostasis but Not Insulin Secretion in Humans
TLDR
It is shown that creatine supplementation may result in abnormalities in glucose homeostasis in the absence of changes in insulin secretion, which is a trend towards elevated fasting plasma glucose levels following creatine supplementation. Expand
Effect of creatine ingestion on glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in men.
TLDR
It was demonstrated that acute Cr supplementation followed by short-term Cr supplementation did not alter insulin action in healthy, active untrained men. Expand
Combined creatine and protein supplementation in conjunction with resistance training promotes muscle GLUT-4 content and glucose tolerance in humans.
TLDR
It is concluded that creatine intake stimulates GLUT-4 and glycogen content in human muscle only when combined with changes in habitual activity level, and combined protein and creatine supplementation improved oral glucose tolerance. Expand
