5.8 mEq/liter (milli-equivalents per liter) of blood is considered to be mildly high.  There is mild, moderate and severe hyperkalemia, or high potassium.

While the mild level is tolerable by most, you should try to lower your potassium intake ot see if your levels drop.  If there is an underlying cause that may result in higher levels in your blood, this would be a great time to try and find that out.
