BACKGROUND An epidemic of progressive kidney failure afflicts sugarcane workers in Central America. Repeated high-intensity work in hot environments is a possible cause. OBJECTIVES To assess heat stress, dehydration, biomarkers of renal function and their possible associations. A secondary aim was to evaluate the prevalence of pre-shift renal damage and possible causal factors. METHODS Sugarcane cutters (N=189, aged 18-49 years, 168 of them male) from three regions in El Salvador were… Expand
