Go back on the Lithium. I endured kidney failure while on Lithium and they took me off of it until my my kydney function came back. Then I was back on the Lithium and have since suffered no kidney problems since (4 years ago).

The role of lithium in the production of acute renal failure is well accepted. The cause is generally due to severe dehydration and volume depletion due to the combination of natriuresis and water diuresis accompanied by elevated lithium levels, altered mental status, and subsequent poor oral intake. However, controversy still exists over its role in chronic renal failure.
