Hey guys, I'm the guy with colitis as everyone on here knows and I'm weaning off my med called prednisone which is a corticosteroid. I'm half off of it and I'm gonna have to wait another month till I'm fully off of it...
If I were to start some creatine now would there be any excess stress placed on my kidneys from creatinine AND the corticosteroid?

You should be taking in protein. Prednisone is a catabolic corticosteroid.United States Air Force DEP - BMT 10 Aug 09

If a person has normal kidney function... Creatine will not affect it. I have no idea if prednisone puts any stress on the kidneys. Coriticoids are rough on the body though. However, you need them for something like inflammation, they serve their purpose.Overcoming the Pressure of a Six-Pack: How I Gained 100 lbs in High School
