Ya, that is definitely high based on what the normal range is.  Anything over two is high. I would actually talk to your doctor. That is normally something to be concerned about.  An increased concentration of urobilinogen in the urine is usually a sign of liver damage or the increased breakdown of red blood cells (hemolysis).  These things   can lead to an increase in urobilinogen levels in urine: a liver disease that disturbs the normal passage of urobilinogen through the liver and gallbladder (viral hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, obstruction of the gallbladder by gallstones, etc.  Or your doctor may look into  a urobilinogen overload caused by the release of larger quantities of hemoglobin (destruction of a abnormally high number of red blood cells as in hemolytic anemia, pernicious anemia, etc.).  When do you see your doctor or have you for follow up?
