The effects of lead exposure on serum 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D levels and calcium homeostasis have been studied in 63 males occupationally exposed to the metal in the UK. The exposure indices used were blood lead, reflecting short-term exposure, and an in vivo X-ray fluorescence measurement of tibia lead which reflects cumulative lead exposure. Serum 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D levels were higher than those in a referent population, who were non-occupationally exposed to lead, and were correlated… CONTINUE READING
