1. Unter bestimmten Versuchsbedingungen und insbesondere im Tierexperiment kann Lithium eine insulinartige Wirkung entfalten. 2. An langfristig mit Lithium behandelten Patienten wurden von mehreren Untersuchern Glukosetoleranztests durchgefuhrt, die zu widerspruchlichen Ergebnissen gefuhrt haben. Eine Verschlechterung der Glukosetoleranz ist wahrscheinlich im Zusammenhang mit der Lithium-bedingten Zunahme des Korpergewichts zu sehen. 3. Die durchschnittliche… 
Lithium: Updated Human Knowledge Using an Evidence-Based Approach
TLDR
Data from a number of studies suggest that lithium reduces the high suicide rates associated with mood disorders, and most experts continue to consider lithium as a keystone therapy of bipolar disorders.

LITHIUM IN MAN: EFFECT ON GLUCOSE TOLERANCE AND SERUM ELECTROLYTES
TLDR
In manic-depressive patients given lithium, glucose tolerance has been found increased by Van der Velde & Gordon (1969), unchanged by Heninger & Mueller (1970), and decreased by: Shopsin, Stern & Gershon (1972).
Effect of lithium on plasma glucose, insulin and glucagon in normal and streptozotocin‐diabetic rats: role of glucagon in the hyperglycaemic response
TLDR
The hyperglycaemic action of lithium is greater in the hypoinsulinaemic diabetic rats and appears to involve a stimulation of glucagon secretion in both normal and diabetic animals.
Manic-depressive illness, diabetes mellitus, and lithium carbonate.
TLDR
The discovery of a diabetic condition in a patient whose complaints of polyuria, thirst, fatigue, and spells of profuse perspiration were initially interpreted as toxic manifestations of lithium carbonate therapy formed the rationale of the following studies.
Blocking effect of naloxone, dihydroergotamine and adrenalectomy in lithium-induced hyperglycaemia and glucose intolerance in the rat.
TLDR
The results suggest that the interaction of secreted endorphins with the sympathetic nervous system is the likely cause of the hyperglycaemia and the inhibition of the glucose-stimulated insulin release induced by lithium.
LITHIUM IN MAN. SERUM ELECTROLYTES AND GLUCOSE AFTER A SINGLE LITHIUM LOAD
TLDR
The influence of a lithium load on the serum values of glucose, phosphate, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and insulin is reported.
Prospective studies on a lithium cohort
TLDR
The tremorigenic effects of lithium and antidepressants seemed to potentiate each other and body weight increased during the first 1–2 years of lithium treatment and then remained constant and weight gain was positively correlated with patients’ body weight before treatment and with the concurrent administration of antidepressant drugs.
Carbohydrate metabolism in mania before and after lithium carbonate treatment.
TLDR
It was observed that after successful treatment of depression with amitriptyline, the manic-depressive patients demonstrated prolonged hypoglycemia in response to exogenous insulin, suggesting that, in contrast to the insulin resistance of severe depression, mania may be associated with an increased sensitivity to insulin.
The Impact of Lithium in South-West Scotland I. Demographic and Clinical Findings
TLDR
A point-prevalence study in South-west Scotland found that 0.77 per 1,000 of the total population were receiving lithium, and most patients believed they had benefited considerably from lithium therapy.
Altered carbohydrate metabolism during treatment with lithium carbonate. Absence of diagnostic specificity in hospitalized psychiatric patients.
Hospitalized psychiatric patients with both affective and non-affective disorders were given oral glucose tolerance tests (GTT) before and after subacute treatment with lithium carbonate. Increased
