Creatine Safety

Hi Everyone,

I’m interested in supplementing with Creatine for the muscle/workout benefits and was wondering if it’s safe. I lift heavy 5 days a week and am always looking to improve my performance.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, @Erin.b!

Mayo clinic seems to suggest it is safe (Creatine - Mayo Clinic), though there have been some case reports about it being potentially dangerous to the liver in some people (Cholestatic liver injury associated with whey protein and creatine supplements - PubMed, S2909 A Rare Case of Acute Fulminant Liver Failure Caused by... : Official journal of the American College of Gastroenterology | ACG). I could not find any information for specific interactions with Hep B though.
