Brief Answer:
You might be having Diabetic Nephropathy

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam ,

Thanks for reverting back.

Well looking into your problem I see that you are suffering from diabetes since 10 years so there is a very likely possibility that you might be having diabetic nephropathy .

For this a complete kidney function test , urine for microalbumin, urine 24 hour protein is done . Your treating doctor has ordered investigations for its evaluation.

Wish you a good health .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
