Good Day
He needs to drink lots of water. Avoid eating much meat as this could cause increased values. You need to correlate the other indices like Urea, Uric acid in the blood as well. Eat plenty of fresh green leafy vegetables as well. Exercise daily. Don't worry. Proper hydration and eating low fat diet is a key.
