Hello! Thanks for allowing me to help you today. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions and positive feedback is much appreciated.
Yes it is very high and should be around 1.0.
This is a sign of kidney damage and failure.
You should go to an ER or see your doctor ASAP.
Kidney failure requires medical treatment and dialysis to filter the blood.
Otherwise the electrolyte levels can become dangerous and life threatening.
I hope this helps. Please ask any follow up questions you have until you feel satisfied with your answer. Positive ratings are much appreciated!

Diet vitamines?

Making sure you drink water and stay hydrated will help.
However, some forms of kidney damage are irreversible.
Medical treatments can help prevent future damage.
No vitamins will help. Eat a low protein and low salt diet to prevent any future damage.
Stay hydrated and see your doctor.
