Brief Answer: Dear XXXXX, Don't Worry Detailed Answer: You have a fairly good control on your sugars. Your kidney sizes are normal Occasional epithelial cells in the urine is a normal finding. However since you are a diabetic, do check your urine for albumin and blood for Urea and Creatinine at least once a year. Warm Regards
