In brief: Not necessarily

Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (nsf), also known as nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy (nfd), is a disease of fibrosis of the skin and internal organs reminiscent but distinct from scleroderma or scleromyxedema.
It is caused by gadolinium exposure used in imaging in patients who have renal insufficiency.

In brief: I am not sure?

Scleromyxedemalike skin lesions occur without associated paraproteinemia.
Serum protein electrophoresis and immunoelectrophoresis results are negative. Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (nsf) occurs in the setting of renal disease. Thus, abnormal values of BUN and creatinine are typically present. Thyroid studies produce normal findings in patients with nephrogenic systemic fibrosis.
