Extreme Thirst/Urination After workout
 
After working out, I take 40g of protein in the form of a shake. The following two hours, I am extremely thirsty and I end up drinking about half a gallon of water. As a result, I keep urinating. I was wondering if this was normal and if any of you guys also experience this?

It's a GNC brand protein.

Yea, I'm thinking about that. I don't want to risk kidney failure.

Are you taking creatine?? The reason for u being so thirsty after workout is u r under hydrated, walk around the gym with a water bottle. Hey, I love doing 5 minute stand up pee :D :rolleyes: :D it just feel sooo good.

Switch powders. I never heard of protein powder being bad for your kidneys. Wow, they should've put that on the back of the label! :p
GNC is about the worst brand you can ever buy. There was a study conducted where they found that their products contained less than what the label states.

Who is telling u that protein powder is bad for ur kidneys, I have been taking them for about5 years and I go through a five pound bag every other week. If protein is going to cause u to have kidney failure then you should avoid all the protein containing foods, such as beef, chicken, Tuna, Cheese, Milk, Eggs, and the list goes on. :p :p :p
