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.
High fluoride concentrations in the serum and bone of patients with chronic renal failure
The aim was to study the effect of ingested fluoride in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). Serum fluoride concentrations were measured in 104 subjects, who formed three groups: nondialyzed CRF, dialyzed CRF, and a control group. The iliac bone fluoride was measured in 20 subjects. Serum, urine and water
Ionic serum fluoride concentrations and age in a low-fluoride community
Some previous studies indicate extra fluoride retention in human bones caused by severe renal insufficiency. Plasma and serum fluoride concentrations may also be elevated in a fluoridated community. The results from low-fluoride areas are less consistent. The first aim of the present study was thus to test the relation between
Serum ionic fluoride concentrations are related to renal function and menopause status but not to age in a Japanese general population
BACKGROUND: There have been no studies in which fasting serum ionic fluoride (SIF) concentrations in a general population were investigated despite the fact that SIF has various activities in humans. METHODS: A total of 332 healthy subjects (167 men and 165 women aged 40 to 69years) were selected from residents of
Ionic plasma fluoride concentrations related to some diseases in patients from a fluoridated community
Little data is available concerning the relationship between variations in ionic plasma fluoride (IPF) concentrations and some diseases, and that which exists is inconclusive. The effect of renal insufficiency is known best, but the relationship between IPF levels and some oedematous diseases and diabetes has hardly been studied at all
The Influence of fluoride on chronic kidney disease of uncertain aetiology (CKDu) in Sri Lanka.
Fluoride is an element that is widely distributed in the environment. The involvement of fluoride in pathogenesis of Chronic Kidney Disease of uncertain aetiology (CKDu) in Sri Lanka is a much-debated topic. This study aimed to investigate the fluoride concentration in drinking water in CKDu affected areas in Sri Lanka
