It can also help treat diabetes, as evidenced in research published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. They found that creatine can improve glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes.
Creatine was also found to improve carbohydrate absorption, or in other words it helps deliver the carbs we consume into muscles to be used for fuel and tissue recovery instead of storing them.
