Tubular and Glomerular Kidney Effects in Swedish Women with Low Environmental Cadmium Exposure
Cadmium is a well-known nephrotoxic agent in food and tobacco, but the exposure level that is critical for kidney effects in the general population is not defined. Within a population-based women’sExpand

Cadmium in blood and urine--impact of sex, age, dietary intake, iron status, and former smoking--association of renal effects.
We studied determinants of cadmium status and kidney function in nonsmoking men and women living on farms in southern Sweden. Median blood Cd (BCd) was 1.8 nmol/L (range, 0.38-18) and median urinaryExpand

Cadmium-Induced Effects on Bone in a Population-Based Study of Women
High cadmium exposure is known to cause bone damage, but the association between low-level cadmium exposure and osteoporosis remains to be clarified. Using a population-based women’s health survey inExpand

The relationship between cadmium in kidney and cadmium in urine and blood in an environmentally exposed population.
INTRODUCTION Cadmium (Cd) is toxic to the kidney and a major part of the body burden occurs here. Cd in urine (U-Cd) and blood (B-Cd) are widely-used biomarkers for assessing Cd exposure or bodyExpand

Iron status influences trace element levels in human blood and serum.
Food is the main source of trace elements for the general population. The gastrointestinal absorption of certain trace elements, e.g., cadmium, is strongly influenced by iron (Fe) status. This factorExpand

Associations between Urinary Excretion of Cadmium and Proteins in a Nonsmoking Population: Renal Toxicity or Normal Physiology?
Background: Associations between cadmium (Cd) and kidney function have been reported even at low levels of exposure in the general population. Recently, the causality of these associations has beenExpand
