The physiological determinants of low-level urine cadmium: an assessment in a cross-sectional study among schoolchildren

Recent studies in children have reported associations of urinary cadmium (U-Cd), used as biomarker of Cd body burden, with renal dysfunction, retarded growth and impaired cognitive development in children. Little is known, however, about factors influencing U-Cd in children and likely to act as confounders. In a cross-sectional study involving 249 schoolchildren (mean age, 5.72...

Confounders in the assessment of the renal effects associated with low-level urinary cadmium: an analysis in industrial workers

Background Associations of proteinuria with low-level urinary cadmium (Cd) are currently interpreted as the sign of renal dysfunction induced by Cd. Few studies have considered the possibility that these associations might be non causal and arise from confounding by factors influencing the renal excretion of Cd and proteins. Methods We examined 184 healthy male workers (mean age...
