Work out resistance training, taking 4g creatine as a supplement. Will this effect blood/urine reports ?

I am 38, work out resistance training 5 days a week, and try to run a few miles twice a week. I am eating healthy, supplementing with protein on work out days. I am also taking 4g creatine as a supplement on training days. I have a Life Insurance physical tomorrow and remembered that among many other things tested in the blood and urine sample are creatinine levels and protein/creatinine level. Is this going to be a concern. I am in great health, or so I think, and usually rate at super preferred rates. Also your opinion of using creatine as a supplement.

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
It will not affect kindey results as kidney creatinine is comin from protein metabolism. Supplement creatine goes thorugh some different metabolic phases. Its usefulness is debatable. Theoretically it will cause more supstrates for energy,but only if there is no enough natural supstrates for energy. So it may be helpful if tehre is no enough carbohydrates in your diet and it there is excessive exercise.
Wish you good health. Regards
