    Does creatine cause high blood pressure?

    I just stopped taking creatine a few weeks ago after I got a some very high BP readings several days in a row. I am talking readings as high as 145/80 . I decided to cut creatine out completely, but I still take whey protein. My BP has gone back to normal range after I stopped taking creatine. Now I’m getting readings like 120/75. Coincidence?

    Can't see full text here but I'll be a monkey's uncle if blood pressure wasn't one of the 50 odd markers tested:

    So almost certainly not.

    If it caused you to have a lot of increased water retention in your vasculature that could happen. Per this paper there is an increase in extracellular and intracellular water with creatine supplementation; it's not clear if the extracellular water would be intravascular or extravascular but that could in theory make a difference: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC155510/

    Easy way to test is to keep taking your BP daily and then start taking creatine again and see if it goes up.

    Well, are you measuring at the same time of day, not right after eating, some position, etc?
    The power of carbs compels me!

    My GP told me that lifters typically have slightly higher BP and that its normal.
