Each metal poisons differently
Gadolinium must be chelated before injection. In the body, it then becomes un-glued...

99% of Gadolinium exposures are via MRI injections. Workplace exposures and poisoning does occur.
- Babies and infants are exposed to MRI gado.
- Gadolinium injection can take many years to leave the body.
- The top three most popular Gadolinium injection products are also the most unstable and poisonous of the 7 total on the market.
- Gadolinium symptoms can appear 6+ months after injection, so tracing the problem is very difficult.
- Patients with kidney disease will have immediate poisoning, while patients with perfect kidneys will get chronic (undiagnosed) poisoning from Gadolinium.
- The MRI you just had to investigate your symptoms, itself, may be actually promoting or even CAUSING the worsening of your disease.
Gadolinium was first smelted and "discovered" in the year 1880. Gadolinium was first used in industry in the 1980's. Gadolinium was first used in medicine in the year 1988. Gadolinium has been known to be a potent medical poison since the year 1997. Anti-gadolinium lawsuits first began in the year 2008. Today, Gadolinium is given to tens on millions of patients each year in the US alone. Gadolinium now has expanded FDA black box warnings as of 2010.
"TRANSMETALLATION" is a big word that means "swapping one metal out for another."
Gadolinium can only be "safely" injected into a body if it is "caged/bound/chelated" inside a safe molecule. Inside the cage it can still be magnetic (useful for magnetic resonance imaging-MRI), and yet it is not allowed out of the cage to "react" with the proteins etc of the body, as it is poisonous. HOWEVER, other heavy metals in a body also want to get inside the cage, and are known to UNLOCK the cage, jump into the cage and kick the gadolinium out. For example, Zinc denture cream is known to release Gadolinium from it's cage. Mercury, Lead and others may do something similar. This unleashed Gadolinium creates chronic disease states.
"EXTRAVASATION" is a big word that means the needle missed (or poked through) the vein and what was supposed to go into your bloodstream got left behind in a muscle or nearby tissue where it takes much longer to get removed from the body as has longer to react with other things. Gadolinium has more time to "unzip" from it's binder and be left behind, in your body, instead of exiting through your kidneys as it is "supposed to".
Some symptoms associated with toxic levels of Gadolinium
Skin changes akin to fibrosis of the skin and muscles, especially on limbs, eye changes, optic floaters, large lumps on limbs near joints.
Tips on testing for Gadolinium in the body
Urine challenge with IV EDTA or biopsy or suspicious tissue are the only ways to reliably find gadolinium. Mayo clinic does blood serum testing for it.
Tips on Chelation of Gadolinium from the body
EDTA iv's in a body with with lots of silver fillings in your mouth may cause mobilization of mercury, so it is necessary to read up on that if you have them. I.V. EDTA is known to chelate Gadolinium, while oral EDTA does not. Suppository EDTA should work, but we don't know how much. DMSA does not remove gadolinium. Experimentation with the use of DTPA is needed. Chelation of Gadolinium is fairly new in online patient experience, circa roughly 2009.
