    For the second time i have developed kidney stones and have had past kidney problems as a child. However, the last time i had them i was told by my doctor it was likely that they were caused by the fact that i was taking creatine at the time.

    Anway i have always taken protein supplements and recently started HST training which is definitely the most enjoyable training i've ever done. Anyway the doctor told me that he didn't think protein supplements were a cause but that maybe i shouldn't take them.

    Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to whether i would be ok continuing on protein shakes or to stop taking them as i don't want continued kidney problems as they are extremely painful. Anway i would be grateful for any advice.

    Many thanks

    best to ask your doctor, im guessing you are going to a specialist for this?

    Dont ask him specifically about protein from supplements, just protein in general
