Hey all...starting december 22nd im getting sentenced for probation...Lets not get into what i did because i was young and dumb and it was a total mistake that i clearly was wrong for...Ive came to accept that and although i cant go back in my past i can learn from it and go on with my future. Anyway im gonna get alcohol and drug probation which i dont even know why cause the case had nothing to do with either but its not a problem because i never did a drug in my life and i occasionally drank but i can do away with that no problem. Id rather not go to jail for a drink. Since january ive really became interested in weight training and have been ever since. I love transforming my body. I take a lot of protein and i also take creatine. Now ive been reading online that people would take creatine to cover using drugs and that if levels are to high, you can get in trouble for it...this is truly a shame because if its true, it ruins it for a person like me who takes creatine strictly for weight lifting. Anyway others online have said it cant affect nothing because it is a natural supplement. I guess im asking advice if anybody knows about this for my safety...I dont want to get in trouble for something i am not guilty of. Although i think it is stupid because creatine is in steak so does this mean i cant eat steak? it sounds like a dumb concept but you never know with the law. A lot of yous might say just ask the PO but i havent been sentenced yet so i obviously cant...once i do i will ask him if i can take it or not and hope that i can...Also i take cell tech if your wondering...anyway, any knowledge on this would be great...sorry for a long post and thanks in advance. Anthony

Creatine and Probation drug testing
11-22-2011, 08:16 PM #2
I doubt they are testing for high levels of anything other than rec drugs (weed, coke, heroin, meth, etc.). Especially if you are a 19 year old.
I'm not knowledgeable on parole officers at all, and I know sometimes the best solution is don't tell the cops anything, but it might be worth it to think about making a list of all supplements you take, sign it and file it with him. Or if you have a lawyer, do it with your lawyer. As a just in case policy, in case anything comes back as a false-positive for something else. Note the chances of this are about .0001%.

creatine's byproduct creatinine is used in drug tests to determine if someone is tampering with the urine screens. for example if creatinine is very low, someone could have tried to flush their system, put water into the sample, etc. If it is concentrated, it shows they are dehydrated, possibly from a system flush 'supp.' I have seen in some of my clients that if they take creatine, their creatinine levels are elevated, or if they drink lot of water like most of us do, the creatinine levels are lower. But still, the rand for 'acceptable' is so wide (20 mg/dl - 350 mg/dl), so unless you intentionally dilute your system you will be fine.
and obviously don't do any drugs or drink alcohol since you are under 21. btw the alcohol etg test can test back up to 72 hours"We Spartans are said to be descended from Hercules himself.
