Chronic Cadmium toxicity causes Fanconi Syndrome and osteomalacia. Increased beta 2 microglobulin in urine is sign of renal damage from cadmium toxicity.

Pigs exposed to dietary cadmium develop a microcytic-hypochromic anemia. The hematocrit value has been recommended as the most sensitive indicator of toxicity in this species, and administration of iron helps prevent the anemia-inducing effects. Source: Regenstrief Institute
