Diabetic nephropathy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I have gone through the report attached and those mentioned in your query.

Urine microalbumin is high this indicates that Nephropathy due to diabetes has set in. Nephropathy is a condition seen as complication due to diabetes where the filtration process in the kidney is hampered.

He must be started kidney protective medications like angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor . Please do discuss with his treating doctor.

Rest of the results are ok.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
