    Don't ask us. Ask your own doctor, or the office where this test is going to be performed.

    Ask them. Do research. Tell them you have CDF before getting the stress test and refuse it if you aren't comfortable.

    Call the testing center and ask them to have a nurse call you to discuss your intolerance of contrast medium. There is probably an alternative contrast medium they can use that won't be a problem for you, but they have to know ahead of time, possibly test a small amount of the product on you to make sure you don't have a bad response to it. Believe me, people in those imaging centers are very careful about not giving a patient something that's going to make problems. It creates a ton of extra paperwork for them as well as getting them into a heap of trouble. These people will be happy to talk to you about your concerns.

    If contrast dye should not be used on a person with chronic kidney failure (CKD) then what are the options for giving them a safe chemical stress test?

      Don't sign the consent form until you feel that you understand what your options are, the benefits and risks of each option.
