  1. Cadmium may be a risk factor for osteoporosis.

    Article - En anglais

    Objectives-The primary study aim was to examine the possible role of cadmium as a risk factor for osteoporosis by determining the bone mineral density (BMD) in workers previously exposed to cadmium.

    A second objective was to validate the BMD data obtained with a movable instrument.

    Methods-43 workers who were exposed to cadmium for <=5 years before 1978 were studied.

    Cadmium in blood (B-Cd) and urine (U-Cd) were used as dose estimates.

    The BMD was assessed in the forearm, the spine, and the hip (neck and trochanter) with a dual energy x ray absorptiometry (DXA) instrument.

    Age and sex matched reference populations were used to compute Z scores, commonly used to assess osteoporosis.

    Results

    The mean forearm Z score was - 0.60 (95% confidence interval (95% CI) - 1.08 to - 0.12) in the group exposed to cadmium.

    The mean Z score for the spine was - 0.47 (95% CI - 0.92 to - 0.03), for the hip neck - 0.40 (95% CI - 0.75 to - 0.05), and for the hip trochanter - 0.22 (95% CI - 0.52 to - 0.07).

    The decrease in forearm BMD was correlated with age (p=0.002) and B-Cd (p=0.040).

    No such correlations were found for the other sites.

    Workers with tubular proteinuria had a lower forearm BMD (p=0.029) and a lower Z score (p=0.072) than workers without tubular proteinuria.

    Conclusions-There was a suggested dose-effect relation between cadmium dose and bone mineral density.

    Furthermore, there was a dose-response relation between cadmium dose and osteoporosis. (...)
