  • New with creatine question

    hi, I'm new here, saw this from posting over at the msworld forums. I am desperately trying to get more active, since having all kinds of health problems over the years plus 5 kids, i have gained 50 lbs. ( I also have a pituitary tumor and had to be on steroids for that).

    Anyway, my question is about my urine creatine tests. Everytime I get that done, my creatine is pretty high, about 4-6 times normal. That's my creatine, not my creatinine. My neuro thinks it's because my muscles are wasting and that is leading to my weakness and fatigue.

    I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem related to MS and what to do about it? Does taking the creatine supplement help? i tried for a few weeks and it didn't seem to make a difference, just made me add a few pounds.

    I'm gratiful this site is here, I really want to exercise again and get back in shape, I know being overweight is not helping me feel any better, and I am ready to get out there and get active again!

    Well darn. If I've never heard of Creatine numbers I guess I can't help.
    Hope you find answers and peace during this crazy time of year!
