No studies have reported detrimental health effects of creatine. According to numerous anecdotal reports, however, creatine supplementation causes ailments; GI, cardiovascular, and muscular problems; nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea; alterations in kidney and liver function; muscle cramps; and elevated blood pressure. As pointed out in a roundtable discussion by the American College of Sports Medicine,

the evidence is not definitive and/or it is incomplete to indict the practice of creatine supplementation as a health risk; at the same time, our lack of information cannot be taken as an assurance that creatine supplementation is free from health risks. Ignorance provides little comfort of untoward effects yet to be discovered. (Terjung et al. 2000)
