The issue in GetHuman1526213's own words
Dear CNN,*This issue is regarding the ongoing health problems resulting from the use of Gadolinium-based contrast solutions used for MRI testing. They are made using metal, i.e., Gadolinium and a binding chemical. It is supposed to be eliminated after use through the bladder. The problem is that the ingredient does not come out and cannot be removed. So, tiny pieces of metal are retained in the blood stream and settle in the brain, joints, and various organs. Headaches and joint pain are early clear indications of remaining contamination. **Medical facilities and offices should be required to provide patients with FULL WRITTEN DISCLOSURE about these drugs PRIOR TO THE DAY OF USE, and to receive signed "INFORMED CONSENT" forms from the patients or their families (if minor or disabled) before the administering of these drugs. The health and lives of patients depends on this requirement.**The problems are multi-tiered: **) Is the patient being fully advised orally and in writing of the dangers of the drug prior to administration? (This should happen well in advance of the date of use.)**) Is there clear proof that this drug can be eliminated from the body of a patient after use? This should be the case before it is allowed on the legal market, (which would be a government responsibility, but is not currently the case).**) Use of this drug has been curtailed in Europe and the Orient. Why is the US government not addressing the danger? What is the Food and Drug Administration doing in this regard? The agency over the safety of drugs in this country should be protecting the population, and not 'only' the pharmaceutical companies and medical practitioners. **Currently there are thousands of people wandering around in this country wondering why they are having various symptoms without any idea that they are the result of this drug approved for use by the FDA. It leaves metal in the organs, brain, and veins, and to date there is no known way to remove it. Why is it still in use?**I am a member of an HMO. I was given this drug at my physician's request when I was on the MRI table, without any prior information. They gave me the drug, but they have decided not to address the issue in any way, including testing, attempts at remediation, or monitoring. I am not allowed to mention it. I had myself tested using an outside doctor's referral and testing company, and was positive. My medical provider has ignored the diagnosis. I have no recourse with them.
