It may mean kidney disease and possible need for dialysis. Is he taking "water"pills like furosemide or lasix? It is very dangerous to have such high numbers and the fluid could be fatal,.Please watch that he follows doctor's orders!! Please get a second opinion if this doctor doesn't take proper care. I suggest you get an ambulance to take him to the ER now!
