Environmental cadmium contamination is present in some rural villages of Mae Sot District, Tak Province, northwestern Thailand. We compared the health of 751 persons aged ≥ 35 years living in 3 contaminated villages with 682 people from 3 non-contaminated villages with similar socio-demographic and lifestyle characteristics in the same district. All the subjects were screened for urinary cadmium (a biomarker for long-term cadmium exposure), renal function, hypertension, diabetes… 

Tables from this paper

Recommended Rice Intake Levels Based on Average Daily Dose and Urinary Excretion of Cadmium in a Cadmium-Contaminated Area of Northwestern Thailand
TLDR
Rice, as a main staple food, is the most likely source of dietary cadmium, and abstaining from or limiting rice consumption will increase the likelihood of maintaining U-Cd within the normal range, as the recommended maximum ADCD is not to exceed 0.6 μg/kg bw/day.
A Comparison of the Nephrotoxicity of Low Doses of Cadmium and Lead
TLDR
It is suggested that chronic exposure to low-level Cd is associated with a decline in kidney function and that women may be more susceptible than men to nephrotoxicity due to an elevated intake of Cd and Pb.
Chronic exposure to cadmium is associated with a marked reduction in glomerular filtration rate
Abstract Background Urinary 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE) has been associated with hypertension in women with elevated urinary cadmium (Cd) excretion rates. The present study investigates
Cadmium and Lead Exposure, Nephrotoxicity, and Mortality
TLDR
Findings indicate that the current tolerable intake of Cd and the conventional urinary Cd threshold limit do not provide adequate health protection, and actions to minimize environmental exposure to these toxic metals are imperative.
Cadmium Contamination in Farmland Soil and Water Near Zinc Mining Site
This study was a cross-sectional study conducted in Phatadpadaeng Subdistrict, Mae Sod District, Tak Province, Thailand. This study aimed to determine cadmium concentration in farmland soil and water
The Effect of Cadmium on GFR Is Clarified by Normalization of Excretion Rates to Creatinine Clearance
Erroneous conclusions may result from normalization of urine cadmium and N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase concentrations ([Cd]u and [NAG]u) to the urine creatinine concentration ([cr]u). In theory, the
Fractional excretion of calcium, a sensitive marker for calcium wasting in cadmium-exposed women
TLDR
Fractional Excretion of Calcium (FECa) showed a relationship to Cd exposure level even following adjustment for a renal dysfunction marker, and it is concluded that FECa has a better sensitivity than urinary Ca and serum Ca.
Cadmium Body Burden and Gestational Diabetes Mellitus: A Prospective Study
TLDR
The findings suggest that Cd body burden increases the risk of GDM and that the association may be modified by fetal sex.

Cadmium-exposed population in Mae Sot District, Tak Province: 4 bone mineral density in persons with high cadmium exposure.
TLDR
Bone mineral loss is correlated with urinary cadmium levels and renal dysfunction in this female population and appears to correlate with reduced bone density in women, but not in men.
Cadmium-exposed population in Mae Sot District, Tak Province: 2. Prevalence of renal dysfunction in the adults.
TLDR
Excessive exposure to cadmium might produce renal dysfunction among the present study population and increased urinary excretion of beta2-microglobulin is a good indicator of renal tubular dysfunction among persons with excessive cad mium exposure.
Renal and blood pressure effects from environmental cadmium exposure in Thai children.
Changes in cadmium exposure among persons living in cadmium-contaminated areas in northwestern Thailand: a five-year follow-up.
TLDR
Urinary excretion of cadmium significantly decreased after environmental Cadmium exposure was reduced, and the adjusted odds ratio for increasing prevalence of high urinary cadMium associated with consumption of locally grown rice was greater than that for tobacco smoking.
Cadmium-exposed population in Mae Sot District, Tak Province: 1. Prevalence of high urinary cadmium levels in the adults.
TLDR
The urinary cadmium level was greater among women than men and increased with increasing age, and smoking cessation programs should be one component of preventive action beneficial for the study population.
Health effects of environmental exposure to cadmium in a population study.
TLDR
It is suggested that the calcium metabolism is gradually affected, as cadmium accumulates in the body, and the morbidity associated with the functional changes, observed in the Cadmibel Study, remains presently unknown and requires further investigation.
