Can I Drink Energy Drinks With High Creatinine LevelHigh creatinine level is one common question for most kidney patients. Energy drinks, like coffee, espresso, cola, tea, and chai, are favored for most young people. However, once patients are tested out high creatinine level, their doctors or dietitians must require them to pay highly attention to energy drinks.

Moderate dose of those drinks for heathy people is acceptable. However, long-term and large amount will bring some bad effects, especially when you have high creatinine level. The following article is about the ingredients in energy drinks and the relationship between it and high creatinine level.

Caffeine

Most of energy drinks contains caffeine. In fact, no research shows a relationship between caffeine and high blood creatinine levels. Reports show that 200mg to 300mg of caffeine per day, equivalent to two to four cups of coffee, is not harmful. Moreover, the U.S. FDA includes caffeine on its list of substances generally recognized as safe.

It can be decomposed by liver and produce some metabolism wastes including paraxanthine, theobromine and theophylline. The wastes will increase the burden on kidneys. If your creatinine level is high, long-term intake of it can cause further damage to kidneys. Moreover, although studies have shown that caffeine does increase alertness and reduces fatigue, it also alters adrenaline levels, sleep patterns and influences autonomic nervous system arousal.

Sugar

High amounts of sugar is found in every energy drink on the market. Sugar is linked to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, rising blood glucose levels. Excessive sugar produce more waste and burden the kidneys.

Creatine

As creatinine is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle, if you take more energy drinks, your kidneys have to filter the extra creatine. However, the kidneys have been damaged and lose the that function, thus more and more creatine will be deposited. Finally, your creatinine level becomes high than abnormal.

From what I have analyzed above, you must know that if you have high level creatinine, you should limit taking energy drinks, no matter how the drink is advertised. For more detailed information, you can consult our online doctors freely.
