  • High sugar Weight gainers and kidney problems?

    Just been reading a thread on a bodybuilding forum ( about a young lads constant tiredness and kidney problems which his doctor has put down to the weight gainer (On Serious Mass) he uses.

    Replies on the thread are saying its not the weight gainer but reading the weight gainer nutritional info it says it has 251g of carbs mostly from maltodextrin per serving.

    Surely 251g carbs can't be good for you? Three serving a say would be 750g of high gi carbs.

    I can see tiredness is probably down to the sugar crashes but surely this much carbs could cause kidney problems aswell?
