I have stage 3 kidney disease which has remained unchanged for 12 or more years. I’m scheduled to have a nuclear stress test in 3 days. Will there be any negative effects on my kidneys because of the dye?

The contrast used for a nuclear cardiac stress test does not have any direct ill effects on the kidney. You should be fine to undergo a nuclear stress test.
