Default my water profile

just got my water profile back today from ward labs. ive known about my alkalinity issue and have been adding lactic acid to drop my ph where i need it.

seems like my sodium is way out of range at 114 . only way to fix this is diluting with ro or distilled water right?

any other issues anyone sees that i should concern myself with and therefore add chemicals? already know calcium is constantly going to be added.
