Renal complications of lithium use: to cease or to continue?

Lithium is the most effective maintenance therapy for patients with bipolar disorder. Important renal adverse effects of chronic lithium use include nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (prevalence circa 20...

Comment on 'Continuation of lithium after a diagnosis of chronic kidney disease'.

Chronic Stress May Not Be a Factor in the Behavioral Response to Chronic Lithium in ICR Mice.

Lithium (Li) is the prototypic mood-stabilizing drug, but the individual response to Li is highly heterogeneous. Some evidence suggest interactions between Li and stress, and it is possible to hypothe...

Diagnosis of monogenic chronic kidney diseases.

The purpose of this review is to emphasize that single gene disorders are an important and sometimes unrecognized cause of progressive chronic kidney disease. We provide an overview of the benefits of...

Cardiovascular comorbidity increases the risk for renal failure during prophylactic lithium treatment.

The development of lithium-associated kidney damage is still a matter of controversy. We have addressed this question by investigating the role of somatic comorbidity for developing kidney failure in ...

Atorvastatin for the Treatment of Lithium-Induced Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Lithium remains the gold-standard treatment for bipolar disorder, with 30-40% of patients with responding preferentially to this medication. Additionally, lithium is commonly used in treat...

Lithium in Acute Kidney Injury

A growing body of pre-clinical evidence suggests that glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSKβ) is implicated in the development and progression of acute kidney injury (AKI). Lithium is a natur...

Lithium Therapeutic Drug Monitoring; Once Daily Vs Twice Daily Dosing and the Impact of Kidney Function

Lithium is a mainstay in the treatment of bipolar disorder, and a frequently used adjunctive therapy for major depressive disorder. It is accepted practice to monitor lithium serum levels ...

Suicide Prevention by Lithium - the Lithium Intervention Study

The purpose of this study is to examine the proposed suicide preventive effects of lithium in a randomized controlled trial within a group of individuals with depressive disorders. The hyp...

Study of the Genetic and Environmental Factors of Vulnerability in Bipolar Disorders

Bipolar disorder is a complex, multifactorial disorder with the intervention of genetic vulnerability factors. To help the identification of these genetic factors and to improve genotype-p...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A lithium salt, classified as a mood-stabilizing agent. Lithium ion alters the metabolism of BIOGENIC MONOAMINES in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, and affects multiple neurotransmission systems.

The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)

A salt of lithium that has been used experimentally as an immunomodulator.

Inorganic compounds that contain lithium as an integral part of the molecule.
