I have only one kidney and has been insufficient for some years. Now I am stable but I have been indicated a CT scan with contrast. I can get the iodine without a problem?

I cannot make medical recommendations without performing a complete history and physical examination.  In most cases, patients with a single kidney can tolerate contrast with iodine, but I do suggest that you discuss your concerns with your physician.  For more information on Contrast dye and your kidneys click here:
