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.
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 levels in populations of high environmental fluoride exposure with endemic CKDu: a case-control study from Sri Lanka.
Chronic kidney disease of uncertain etiology (CKDu) is a common health issue among farming communities in the dry zone of Sri Lanka where groundwater fluoride is known to be higher than recommended levels. Excessive environmental ingestion of fluoride is widely considered as a possible factor for the onset of CKDu.
Serum inorganic fluoride: changes related to previous fluoride intake, renal function and bone resorption
1. Inorganic fluoride concentrations were determined in serum and urine specimens of 24 subjects receiving a standardized low fluoride intake. Serum fluoride was directly correlated with previous intake and appeared to reflect bone fluoride stores. 2. A positive correlation between creatinine and fluoride clearance was found. However, striking reductions in
Hemodialyzability of ionizable fluoride in hemodialysis session
The fluoride ion content in serum and in dialysate medium was determined by means of a fluoride ion-selective electrode in 29 patients undergoing hemodialysis treatment. Abnormally high serum fluoride of 65.9 +/- 28.3 microg l(-1) at the beginning and 46.5 +/- 26.7 microg l(-1) at the completion of the hemodialysis
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
