Gadolinium Deposition Disease Symptoms
More than 30 million Americans undergo an MRI or MRA each year. Most scans use the contrast dye gadolinium to enhance the visibility of internal organs and tissues. Manufacturers promised consumers that their kidneys would expel the chemical without any harm to them. However, gadolinium builds up in the body causing serious and chronic side effects, which causes Gadolinium Deposition Disease.
