Skeletal Fluorosis : The depletion of excess fluoride in the bones causes debilitating Bones. It is termed as Skeletal Fluorosis. It may be caused by frequent drinking of tea or water that contain high levels of Fluoride. Normally, the kidneys excrete the extra amount of fluoride from the body. But if it is in high content, then they fail to do so. As a result the fluoride gets deposited in the bones in crystal form. It causes weak bones and Joint Pain. The bones become hard and causes stiffness. It decreases the elasticity of the bones hence causing limited joint movement. Skeletal fluorosis is difficult to detect because the symptoms of other diseases are same to that of Skeletal Fluorosis. Prolong Skeletal Fluorosis may cause Neurological disorders and muscle waste.
