Toxicity Cadmium Poisoning Symptoms




Acute exposure to cadmium fumes may cause flu like symptoms including
chills, fever, and muscle ache. Symptoms of cadmium toxicity may resolve
after a week if there is no respiratory damage. More severe exposures
can cause tracheo-bronchitis, pneumonitis, and pulmonary oedema.




Symptoms of cadmium poisoning inflammation may start hours after the
exposure and include:





  • Cough



  • Dryness and irritation of the nose and throat



  • Headache



  • Dizziness



  • Weakness



  • Fever



  • Chills



  • Chest pain.





Inhaling cadmium-laden dust quickly leads to respiratory tract and
kidney problems which can be fatal (often from renal failure).




Ingestion of any significant amount of cadmium causes immediate
poisoning and damage to the liver and the kidneys. Compounds containing
cadmium are also carcinogenic.




The bones become soft (osteomalacia), lose bone mass and become weaker
(osteoporosis). This causes the pain in the joints and the back, and
also increases the risk of fractures. In extreme cases of cadmium
poisoning, the mere body weight causes a fracture.




The kidneys lose their function to remove acids from the blood in
proximal renal tubular dysfunction. The kidney damage inflicted by
cadmium poisoning is irreversible and does not heal over time.




The proximal renal tubular dysfunction creates low phosphate levels in
the blood (hypophosphatemia), causing muscle weakness and sometimes coma.




The dysfunction also causes gout, a form of arthritis due to the
accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints because of high acidity
of the blood (hyperuricemia).




Another side effect is increased levels of chloride in the blood
(hyperglycaemia). The kidneys can also shrink up to 30%. Other patients
lose their sense of smell (anosmia).
