This is something I was told by a Walgreens pharmacist tonight when I went to pick up an antibiotic for my hubby. I was discussing his recent reaction to the CT contrast dye, and she asked me if he was on Metformin. He is not, but I know that some cancer patients have recently started taking Metformin. She said that there is a greater risk of kidney problems following CT scan with contrast dye. So, please take this with a grain of salt and check with your doctor. I just wanted to pass along the information.
