In brief: Lithuum tests

Typically, lithium blood levels are ordered periodically to make sure the amount of litium is ib tgerapeutic range.
In addition, other blood tests and some times uribe tests to make sure the lithium isn't negatively affecting other metabolic systems. These would include kidney functioning tests, thyroid fubctioning (t3, t4, tsh) and creatininecle creatininecleaacreatinineclear creatininecleara crea.
