If you were not properly informed and warned about the side-effects of gadolinium retention, and you have now been diagnosed with gadolinium toxicity, then contact a reliable and experienced lawyer in Texas. An experienced lawyer can evaluate your case and provide you with quality assistance for filing a Gadolinium lawsuit, and getting you justice.
Gadolinium toxicity lawsuits are becoming common in the US largely because health care providers fail to provide adequate information about gadolinium-based contrast agents to patients such as warnings, precautions, adverse reactions, and concerns regarding gadolinium retention in the bones and other body organs. This information should be provided in detail especially to patients who are at a high risk of gadolinium retention, including pregnant women, children, and even patients with inflammatory issues.
So, if you’ve been affected with gadolinium toxicity then you deserve to get compensated in order to pay for your treatment for the diseases caused by gadolinium contrast dyes.
Gadolinium—What is it?
Gadolinium is basically a ductile, malleable and silvery white metal, which is highly-effective for use with MRIs, CT scans, X-rays and angiography imaging. It helps provide clear, crisp and detail pictures of the internal organs, thereby facilitating accurate reporting in terms of whether there is a disease or abnormality present in your body.
At the same time, it is important to understand that gadolinium-based contrast agents are extremely dangerous as they can remain in the body and expose you to serious health risks.
Diseases Caused by Gadolinium That Makes it Highly Dangerous
Gadolinium dyes have been found to cause two serious medical conditions such as:
- Gadolinium deposition disease (GDD), and
- Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF)
GDD occurs when the patient who previously had normal renal function begins to develop painful symptoms and experience rental problems anywhere from a couple of hours to several weeks after they have been injected with GDCA. Symptoms of gadolinium deposition disease may include persistent headaches, brain fog, pain in the joints and bones.
On the other hand Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) is a condition that causes renal insufficiency due to gadolinium retention. In such a situation, gadolinium can’t be removed from the patient’s body properly. Symptoms include darkening and thickening of the skin, muscle weakness, scarring of the body organs, burning, swelling, itching, joint stiffness and pain in the ribs and hip bones.
