Heavy Metals: The extent of kidney damage caused by heavy metals depends on the dose, route and duration of exposure. Cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), lead (Pb), platinum (Pt), and Chromium (Cr) and they can cause heavy metal nephropathy and the severity could range from tubular dysfunction to renal failure/death.
