Help described here is intended for people who are, or suspect they are Gadolinium Toxic. It will also be useful for family members. Please understand that we are not medical professionals, and the information provided here should not be considered medical advice. We suggest that you gather as much information as you can find from a variety of sources and then consult with your doctor or other medical professional when making decisions about your care.
Other than this website and the MRI-Gadolinium Toxicity Yahoo Support Group, help for those who suspect they have symptoms of Gadolinium Toxicity will be hard to find. It is not recognized as a medical condition and it is believed that patients with normal kidney function do not retain Gadolinium. Because of that, there are no established tests to help you better understand your level of toxicity and no treatments have been identified and proven successful. We will attempt to fill you in with the information we have gathered from medical research literature, our own research, the MRI-Gadolinium Toxicity Yahoo Support Group, and our own personal experiences.
We suggest that before exploring these Help pages, you read the three documents found in Our Research, as they will give you some of the background information you need.
We have separated the information in this section onto individual web pages that will help you understand more about the following:
- How people become Gadolinium Toxic from contrast MRI’s
- Symptoms associated with Gadolinium Toxicity
- Testing for Gadolinium Toxicity – both initial and progress tracking
- Treatment possibilities
You may also find helpful information in our Viewpoints section, where those of us who have experience with Gadolinium Toxicity offer our thoughts and ideas on a variety of related topics.
Finally, if you want to have an interactive experience with other afflicted persons, we suggest that you apply for membership in the MRI-Gadolinium Toxicity Yahoo Support Group.
