Abstract
The authors conducted a study in which 10 patients with recurrent affective disorders who responded completely to long-term lithium therapy but who were otherwise unselected were tested for renal tubular concentrating and acidification ability. Despite frequent symptoms of thirst, polyuria, and nocturia, all patients were able to concentrate urine normally and all showed normal renal tubular acidification ability. A significant correlation was found between erythrocyte lithium concentration and maximum urinary osmolality.
