In brief: Find out the cause

You should perhaps find out the cause of the imbalance before correcting, as different conditions are treated differently.
It is paramount to get to the root of the problem as there may be some life threatening or potentially so conditions that if left untreated may get advanced enough to leave permanent damage or even end up in death.

In brief: Determine the cause

To correct any imbalance, you have to know the reason why it is occurring.
If there is a diagnosis of a kidney or metabolic disease, you physician can guide you on this. If it is assumed that there is an imbalance, then an evaluation should be done to address those concerns and look for a source.
