Spleen Removed

Hi all. A few years ago (jan 1997) i had my spleen removed as it was larged (over 1kg). My doctor mentioned to me at the time that my other organs (liver, kidneys, etc) would take over the “jobs” my spleen performed.

I am wondering if a high protein/carb diet including creatine will place a significantly increased load on my other organs and if so is their anything i can do to minimise any negative effects associated with this?

Don’t sweat it. Your spleen has no digestive properties, nor does it have any other properties that would hinder your progress on this kind of plan. You’ll be fine.
