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.
