This level is a little on the higher side. Normal B12 levels are 200-900 picograms per milliliter. B12 is easily excreted in urine so excessive levels are uncommon. It could be indicating liver problems like cirrhosis or hepatitis or it could be that the kidney's are not functioning properly (common in diabetics) so since the patient has known kidney disease, most likely it is due to this reason. It is something to discuss with the primary Dr, endocrinologist or nephrologist (if the patient has one)
