The beta 2-Mg (beta 2-microglobulin) and GAG (glycosaminogyclan) excretions in 107 patients with bipolar disorder who had been on lithium treatment for 1-15 years were compared with 29 matched psychiatric control patients. 24-h urine volume, urine beta 2-Mg, GAG values were significantly higher, and maximal urinary osmolality was significantly lower in patients on lithium than in controls. No relationship was found between creatinine clearances and duration of illness, duration of lithium treatment and daily lithium dosages. Duration of lithium treatment was not related to the concentrating capacity. The beta 2-Mg excretion rates were significantly higher in patients with manifest polyuria and with severe concentration defect.
