Hello
In fact, the BEST thing here is to have a microalbumin of the urine.
this will be accurate as to whether or not you have protein leakage due to diabetes.

If so, 3 things are needed to stop this.
ACE inhibitor medications.
Low protein/vegetarian protein only diet.
Blood sugar control and diet.

That is the standard of medicine approach, and I have reversed this problem and arrested it in many patients.


I am a double board certified doctor in internal medicine, integrative medicine, a trained classical homeopath and functional medicine doctor. I have over 20 years of clinical experience and continue to practice.
I am here daily by request. Use my request link with a long lock and "for Dr. Thomas only" in the title.
I am here daily and will provide prompt, excellent and complete service.


Please do not forget a positive rating, hopefully excellent, and find me as needed for questions.
