||The metabolism, toxicity and renal effects of cadmium are reviewed. The long half-life of cadmium in the human organism causes its accumulation in the liver and kidneys. Renal effects include early tubular dysfunction manifested by proteinuria, amino aciduria, glucosuria, phosphaturia and calcium wastage. Chronic effects include decrease in the glomerular filtration rate and increased rate of kidney stone disease. Biological monitoring of cadmium absorption includes determination of urinary cadmium and of low molecular weight marker proteins.
