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.
Studies on serum fluoride and bone metabolism in patients with long term hemodialysis
With growing experience of the long-term treatment of patients with end stage renal disease by hemodialysis, the safety of fluoridated water supply for dialysate and the effect on the bone metabolism has been discussed. In this study, concentrations of fluoride (F), calcium (Ga). aluminum (AI) and biochemical indices of bone metabolism,
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 +
The relationship between human ionic plasma fluoride and serum creatinine concentrations in cases of renal and cardiac insufficiency in a fluoridated community
Previous studies have shown that renal and cardiac insufficiency cause an elevation of ionic plasma fluoride (IPF) concentration in patients suffering from these diseases. The relationship between serum or plasma fluoride concentration and the degree of renal impairment has been tested only twice; with somewhat contrasting results, although some previous
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
Serum and urine fluoride concentration: relationships to age, sex and renal function in a non-fluoridated population
Serum and urine fluoride levels were determined in 250 healthy subjects (15-90 years, 122 men and 128 women) residing in Catalonia, Spain, and in 150 patients (20-81 years, 84 men and 66 women) with chronic renal failure undergoing regular dialysis treatment, living in the same geographical area, to determine normal
