Some PKD patients may want to have more energy. In view of this, is creatine supplement safe for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients?

What is creatine?

Creatine is one natural substance which plays an important role in the production of energy. In the body, creatine turns into creatine phosphate that helps produce a substance called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
