Abstract

Despite the lack of research regarding the efficacy or safety of creatine supplementation in high school athletes, creatine was used by 25% of males and 4% of female high school athletes in Wisconsin. High school athletes who use creatine may not be aware of the risks and benefits associated with creatine supplementation. Primary care providers and sports medicine professionals need to educate athletes, coaches and parents about the creatine use as a performance enhancing supplement.
