Eight 14-week-old male Wistar FL strain rats were administered sodium fluoride in a single intraperitoneal dose (35 mg NaF/kg of bw). After 90 min the rats were fatally anesthetized with ether, and blood samples were taken. Compared to ten control rats, fluoride-treated rats developed hyperglycemia accompanied by a statistically significant increase in the concentration of fluoride, creatinine, and urea and a decrease in the level of protein and calcium in the blood serum. The results indicate disturbances in the filtrating function of kidneys in rats.
Effects of fluoride on bone metabolism in patients with hemodialysis
The maior pathway of fluoride elimination from the human body is the kidney. The discharge of fluoride into urine depends on the clearance of the kidney. Fluoride in serum of hemodialysis patients is higher than that of healthy subjects. Fluoride is not reduced sufficiently with hemodialysis. Those patients are in
The relationship of creatinine clearance to serum fluoride concentration and urinary fluoride excretion in man
The effects of renal function on urinary fluoride clearance and serum inorganic fluoride concentration were studied. Laboratory determinations including (1) creatinine clearance rate (CCR), (2) serum inorganic fluoride concentration, and (3) urinary fluoride concentration, were made on 122 hospital patients. Subjects were then divided into impaired, questionable and normal creatinine
Serum fluoride concentrations in renal insufficiency
In an area with non-fluoridated water (F content, 0.061 ppm), serum fluoride concentrations as measured with an ion specific electrode were as follows: controls (N = 13), 0.0127 ppm + 0.0057 (mean + SD); renal insufficiency (N = 10), 0.0452 ppm + 0.0151; chronic hemodialysis (N = 11), 0.0424 +
Sodium fluoride induces nephrotoxicity via oxidative stress-regulated mitochondrial SIRT3 signaling pathway.
Accumulation of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (mROS) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of fluorosis. As the main mitochondrial deacetylase, SIRT3 is closely associated with oxidative stress. To investigate the role of SIRT3 in response to sodium fluoride (NaF)-induced nephrotoxicity. Our results showed that NaF treatment impaired mitochondrial ultrastructure, decreased
Pattern of renal osteodystrophy in haemodialysis patients in Saudi Arabia
In order to know the pattern of renal osteodystrophy in haemodialysis patients in Saudi Arabia we conducted a multicentre study involving 209 patients. The mean age of the patients was 39.4 +/- 14 (18-70) years, 128 were males and 81 females. All patients were on acetate dialysate and their mean
