Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Potassium of 7.5 is surely high .High potassium is not good for heart;but reports are a supportive evidence along with symptom to diagnose the disease a person is suffering from.You had some problem or symptom for which i guess you got investigated also you have not written any details about your age;sex;or the disease or problem you have .If the other reports are normal then please ask your doctor whether increase in potassium has any relation with your symptoms as he will be the better person to give opinion.
Thanks

Oh im sorry im 18 year old female the reason i went in for blood test was because i was feeling weak and tired thought maybe it was my thyroids so she decided to run blood test but my kidneys and everything else came out normal so she took blood from me again and i'll get the results on Wednesday but i was kinda of scared.Do you think if it was more serious she would of had me go to the ER?
