In Reply.—We cannot correlate changes in plasma and urinary vasopressin levels since we did not measure the former. However, urinary vasopressin levels reflect an integrated value for vasopressin changes in plasma. Urine vasopressin would be expected to have a close, temporal relationship with plasma arginine vasopressin levels during the interval since the last voiding.
