my husband is do for this test and i am very concernd to what this may do to his one kidney, should he go have this done or not? we have been told it is fine for one dr. and not to have it done from another dr. that it is very harsh on kidney.
Well, you can live without any kidneys but you cant live without a heart. I think Kaismama is correct, consult a nephrologist. It comes down to risk vs.benefit in these cases. If the risk is greater than the benefit, then he should not do it but if the benefit of doing it is greater than the risk then he needs to have it done. It may be that they need the information about the heart and it is worth risking the kidney. The nephrologist and cardiologist need to have a chat with each other.
