Phosphorus level is 4.5. The very top of range. Is this okay or should I be concerned?? What could it mean?

Means UR normal?: Hyperphosphatemia (abnormally high serum phosphate levels) can result from increased phosphate intake, decreased phosphate excretion, or a disorder that shifts intracellular phosphate to extracellular space. Likely little cause for concern in your case, unless you're taking IV hyperalimentation.
