A case-control study was undertaken to understand the etiopathology of the bone deformities among young children in a fluoride-affected village of the Bihar State. Two villages were selected: one village with high fluoride in drinking water (7.9 ± 4.15 ppm), and the other village with normal levels of fluoride (0.6 ± 0.31 ppm) as the control village. The source of drinking water was bore wells in both the villages. Two hundred and forty subjects from 54 households (HHs) of the high-fluoride… Expand
Vitamin D Deficiency, Rickets, and Fluorosis in India
TLDR
The daily dietary calcium intake of both the urban and the rural population was low compared to that of recommended daily/dietary allowances (RDA) issued by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). Expand
ASSESSMENT OF SKELETAL FLUOROSIS AMONG CHILDREN IN TWO BLOCKS OF RURAL AREA, JAIPUR DISTRICT, RAJASTHAN, INDIA
TLDR
Significantly increase in fluoride level in drinking water is positively correlated with SF, and the relation of SF to high fluoride levels in the source of drinkingWater is a major risk factor for SF among the children. Expand
Haematological changes in fluorotic adults and children in fluoride endemic regions of Gaya district, Bihar, India
TLDR
Groundwater used for drinking and cooking was analysed for fluoride (F), and health surveys were conducted in Bodh Gaya, Amas and Bankebazaar blocks of the Gaya district, Bihar, India, showing that more than 50% of adults and more than 55 % of children had complaints of gastro-intestinal disturbances in the F endemic areas. Expand
Association of dental and skeletal fluorosis with calcium intake and serum vitamin D concentration in adolescents from a region endemic for fluorosis
TLDR
F fluorosis was more common in lower SES adolescents, probably due to the lack of access to bottled water, and relatively adequate calcium intake and serum 25OHD concentrations may have increased the efficiency of dietary calcium absorption, thus preventing severe fluorosis. Expand
Dental fluorosis, nutritional status, kidney damage, and thyroid function along with bone metabolic indicators in school-going children living in fluoride-affected hilly areas of Doda district, Jammu and Kashmir, India
TLDR
F fluorotic area school children were more affected with dental fluorosis, kidney damage, along and some bone indicators as compared to control school children. Expand
Child Skeletal Fluorosis from Indoor Burning of Coal in Southwestern China
TLDR
Dental fluorosis was highly correlated with skeletal fluorosis in this study and further efforts to reduce fluoride exposure among children in southwestern of China where coal is burned indoors are desperately needed. Expand
GENU-VALGUM ( KNOCK-KNEE ) SYNDROME IN FLUOROSIS-ENDEMIC RAJASTHAN AND ITS CURRENT STATUS IN INDIA
During a recent observational survey of chronic fluoride (F) intoxication in school children in the F endemic villages of the Dungarpur district of Rajasthan, India, a case of genu-valgumExpand
Study on Blood Biochemical Diagnostic Indices for Hepatic Function Biomarkers in Endemic Skeletal Fluorosis
TLDR
F fluoride exposure intensifies the activities of hepatic function enzymes in osteofluorosis, and the increased levels of transaminases in fluorotic patients suggest alteration in liver functions. Expand
Meta-analysis of electrolyte imbalance in human fluorosis
TLDR
High fluoride ingestion through drinking water could induce hypocalcemia, hypernatremia, hyperkalemia and hyperphosphatemia in patients of fluorosis, and the serum level of calcium declined significantly. Expand
Dose-dependent effect of fluoride on clinical and subclinical indices of fluorosis in school going children and its mitigation by supply of safe drinking water for 5 years: an Indian study
TLDR
The results showed a positive correlation between the drinking water and urinary fluoride (UF) in different categories, however, there was a significant decrease in the UF levels in the intervention category IV compared to affected group ( category III). Expand

ENDEMIC GENU VALGUM AND OTHER BONE DEFORMITIES IN TWO VILLAGES OF MANDLA DISTRICT IN CENTRAL INDIA
TLDR
The typical fluorotic dental mottling, the radiological findings, and the high fluoride content in the urine and drinking water all point to high fluoride, probably enhanced by deficient nutrition, as the cause of the genu valgum and other bone deformities. Expand
Endemic chronic fluoride toxicity and dietary calcium deficiency interaction syndromes of metabolic bone diease and deformities in India: Year 2000
TLDR
The findings strongly suggest that children with calcium deficiency rickets reported in the literature should be re-investigated for possible fluoride interactions, as well as as the cost effective and practical public health measures for the prevention and control of endemic fluorosis. Expand

Normal ionized calcium, parathyroid hypersecretion, and elevated osteocalcin in a family with fluorosis.
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that patients with fluorosis have markedly elevated osteocalcin, a marker of osteoblastic activity, and that they may have significantly elevated PTH concentrations in the presence of normal total and ionized calcium concentrations. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the production of 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol, believed to be the metabolically active form of vitamin D in the intestine, is responsible for the adaptation of calcium absorption to low dietary concentrations of calcium. Expand

TLDR
The results of these studies indicate that the effects of PTH on the metabolism of 25-OH-D3 by chick kidney cells are mediated by cAMP, since they can be enhanced and mimicked by forskolin, that they are exerted at the level of both 1- and 24-hydroxylase activity, and that they were not dependent on the calcium concentration of the medium.
