Let’s Start With the Problem

Gadolinium is widely used as an injectable contrast agent when patients undergo MRI scans. This is so doctors can easily detect and trace any problems found within the body. Before undergoing an MRI, a gadolinium based contrast agent (GBCA) is often injected into the bloodstream to help make diseased tissues look brighter or darker during the scan. The kidneys are supposed to expel the chemical after receiving the injection. However, in cases of individuals with poorly functioning kidneys, patients can develop complications from the element not being properly filtered out of the body. The remaining Gadolinium in the body can cause various health issues over time.

Work Toward Wellness

Before you can improve your gadolinium levels, you must start with a detailed assessment that offers real, meaningful insights. Measuring for gadolinium levels helps pinpoint if you could have toxic amounts in your body. With this actionable information, you can take the necessary steps to take control of your overall health.

Gadolinium

Gadolinium is a heavy metal that is frequently used in the MRI scanning process in the form of a “contrast agent”. The contrast agent or Gadolinium Based Contrast Agent (GBCA) is injected into the body and circulated through the blood to enhance the brain imaging process. Properly functioning kidneys should filter the Gadolinium completely out of the body within days of original use.

Creatinine

Creatinine is a waste byproduct in the blood that passes through the kidneys to be filtered and eliminated in urine. Urinary creatinine is used in conjunction with dried urine tests simply to account for and correct results based on the hydration status of the individual.
