- side effect, gadavist
.Or something that had galididium (sp?) in the dye? I had an MRI brain study at which time I was injected with the the dye. I had several side effects after this study which may or may not be related; I would love to know if anybody else has had failing kidneys; my kidneys are now a problem with my globmerular filtration rate steadily getting worse. Thanks very much: I greatly appreciate help I receive here.

Yes, the FDA reports problems with Gadolinium since 2006 - see http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/DrugSafetyNewsletter/ucm142889.htm for information and specifics. You should consult, of course, with a kidney specialist for treatment right away as this condition can be very, very serious. You should also consult with a lawyer for damages. Please take care -
