Creatine supplementation may have a therapeutic role in diabetes, but it is uncertain whether this supplement is safe for kidney function. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of creatine supplementation on kidney function in type 2 diabetic patients. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was performed. The patients were randomly allocated to receive either creatine or placebo for 12 weeks. All the patients underwent exercise training throughout the trial… Expand
Does creatine supplementation affect renal function in patients with peripheral artery disease? A randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled, clinical trial.
TLDR
Eight weeks of creatine supplementation is safe and does not compromise the renal function of patients with peripheral arterial disease. Expand
Does long-term creatine supplementation impair kidney function in resistance-trained individuals consuming a high-protein diet?
TLDR
A 12-week creatine supplementation protocol did not affect kidney function in resistance-trained healthy individuals consuming a high-protein diet; thus reinforcing the safety of this dietary supplement. Expand
Novel renal biomarkers show that creatine supplementation is safe: a double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the use of CS at doses of 3 g and 5 g/day for a short period (35 days) is safe and did not impair the kidneys or renal function in young healthy subjects. Expand
Efficacy and safety of creatine supplementation in childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematosus: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial
TLDR
A 12-week creatine supplementation protocol at 0.1 g/kg/d is well tolerated and free of adverse effects but did not affect intramuscular phosphorylcreatine, muscle function, free-fat mass or quality of life in non-active C-SLE patients. Expand
Creatine supplementation (3 g/day) and bone health in older women: a 2-year, randomized, placebo-controlled trial.
TLDR
Creatine supplementation over 2 years did not improve bone health in older, postmenopausal women with osteopenia, nor did it affect lean mass or muscle function in this population, refutes the long-lasting notion that this dietary supplement alone has osteogenic or anabolic properties in the long run.

Examining the effects of creatine supplementation in augmenting adaptations to resistance training in patients with prostate cancer undergoing androgen deprivation therapy: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial
TLDR
If the results of this trial demonstrate that creatine supplementation can augment beneficial adaptations of body composition, physical function and/or psychosocial outcomes to resistance training, this study will provide effect sizes that will inform the design of subsequent definitive randomised controlled trials. Expand
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
Creatine supplementation does not augment muscle carnosine content in type 2 diabetic patients.
TLDR
It is concluded that creatine supplementation does not augment muscle carnosine content in type 2 diabetic patients. Expand

In sickness and in health: the widespread application of creatine supplementation
TLDR
It is argued that the widespread application of this supplement may benefit athletes, elderly people and various patient populations, as well as maintain an excellent safety profile. Expand

Effects of creatine supplementation on renal function: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial
TLDR
The decrease in cystatin C indicates that high-dose creatine supplementation over 3 months does not provoke any renal dysfunction in healthy males undergoing aerobic training, and the results suggest that moderate aerobic training per se may improve renal function. Expand
Few adverse effects of long-term creatine supplementation in a placebo-controlled trial.
TLDR
A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of creatine monohydrate in patients with the neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, because of the neuroprotective effects it was shown to have in animal experiments is performed. Expand
Creatine supplementation does not affect kidney function in an animal model with pre-existing renal failure.
TLDR
Creatine supplementation at a dosage of 2% w/w for 4 weeks does not impair kidney function in animals with pre-existing renal failure or in control animals. Expand
Effects of creatine supplementation on glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in sedentary healthy males undergoing aerobic training
TLDR
The results suggest that creatine supplementation, combined with aerobic training, can improve glucose tolerance but does not affect insulin sensitivity, and may warrant further investigation with diabetic subjects. 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
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
Effect of short-term creatine supplementation on renal responses in men
TLDR
It was showed that short-term oral Cr supplementation does not appear to have any detrimental effect on the renal responses of healthy men. Expand
Effects of creatine supplementation on body composition and renal function in rats.
TLDR
Creatine supplement in combination with exercise increased the proportion of lean mass more than EX or CREAT alone and induced an important and significant reduction of both RPF and GFR. Expand
Creatine supplementation increases renal disease progression in Han:SPRD-cy rats.
TLDR
Creatine supplementation resulted in greater cyst growth and worsened renal function in the Han:SPRD-cy rat, indicating that creatine supplements may exacerbate disease progression in an animal model of cystic renal disease. Expand
Effect of short-term high-dose creatine supplementation on measured GFR in a young man with a single kidney.
TLDR
It is suggested that short-term creatine supplementation may not affect kidney function in an individual with a single kidney, mild decreased GFR, and ingesting a high-protein diet (ie, 2.8 g/kg/d). Expand
