Should read - may cause kidney damage
I did get the gist -;)
The problem I had is the dye makes you feel you are wetting yourself
Question Author
Should read - may cause kidney damage to to those who already have kidney problems

But how do you know if you already have kidney problems if it's not obvious, without undertaking investigations ?
It's always obvious if one has kidney problems ,if it isn't then the kidney problem is insignificant.

They have alternatives, just let them know on the day.
I had this exact MRI with the dye last week.
