Recommended Posts

Action star Chuck Norris took on medical device manufacturers in a lawsuit filed in California on Wednesday alleging a chemical used in MRI imaging scans poisoned his wife.
Gadolinium that doctors injected into Gena Norris to improve the clarity of her MRIs have left her weak and tired and with debilitating bouts of pain and a burning sensation, the suit filed in San Francisco Superior Court says.

I was always told the use of dye in an MRI for a diabetic is a no no.

I once walked away from an MRI when I saw the nurse coming at me with a syringe.

Asked " what's that?" Told it was the dye. Told her I was a diabetic. Naturally she told me it was OK.

 

Just got up and left.

 

Ever had a nurse chase you down a hall waving a syringe?

 

He final words were " well I'm calling your doctor."

 

So, I'm kinda with Chuck

I've had 3 MRIs (or was it 4) both with and without contrast.  I get them yearly. 

 

If your kidneys are having issues, the dye is indeed dangerous as your kidneys struggle to remove it from your system. 

If your kidneys are in good shape, this isn't a problem. 

 

As I am diabetic, they do a quick blood check when I get there to confirm my kidney function.
