User :   Hi doc, i had a kidney transplant 2 years ago, I am back to the gym and doing quite well, I'm a able to take kre-alkalyn, I heard this is the only creatine that doesnt convert to creatinine?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   i am Dr.
Doctor :   so yo want to verifythe information?
Doctor :   is that right?
User :   yes I do, is this a safe creatine to take, having had a kidney transplant
Doctor :   According to the manufacturer, the claim is true
User :   So are you saying this would be safe to take?
Doctor :   the site says it is 100% stable and will not break down and directly goes into muscles and builds up muscles
Doctor :   plz wait
User :   Okay
Doctor :   research facts : KRE-ALKALYN® Creatine - Awarded U.S. Patent #6,399,661
Doctor :   Armed with the creatine facts above, XXXXXXXX Golini and the Bioceutical Research team went to work to address the toxic conversion of creatine monohydrate. Eighteen months later, the finishing touches were made and a U.S. Patent application filed for the successful and novel method of keeping creatine monohydrate stable and completely free of toxic conversion.
Doctor :   so based on reserach, this product will not break down and safe
Doctor :   The product is not studied on kidney transplan patients
Doctor :   but studied in lab and in general subjects
Doctor :   So based on the information, I will not anticipate any problems
Doctor :   But I will warn you watch the the symptoms of muscles crams, stomach crams
Doctor :   I will also recommend frequent check up of your serum creatinine
Doctor :   Are you with me?
User :   yes I am, I have check ups at the hospital every 3 months, I dont plan on taking it for a long time. perhaps only 2 months.
Doctor :   then it is not a problem at all
User :   okay thanks for your help
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting
Doctor :   bye
