This article is written by someone who sells creatine, but thought you might want to read it. I have borderline high bp, with medication and I still use Concret Creatine. No water bloat with that. Here is the article... http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/node/26419

That's a good article. I haven't felt much 'bloating' like others describe, but I feel my muscles are a hell of a lot stronger and I seem like I have more of a "pump" all of the time.. it seems I'm more flexed like there is more muscle glycogen (which is what it's supposed to do I think)

I approve.

I've had personal training clients that reduced their dependence on BP meds/diuretics, but only in coordination with their doctor's approval and after losing enough weight to have an impact on health markers.

If you have any concerns, talk to your doc or pass on supplements until you've naturally dropped into a more normal weight range.

Excess body fat is stored energy. You have more than you need to get to work! It just takes some time and consistency to re-wire your metabolism.

Keep showing up and keep working hard!
