Thanks for posting your query.
Diabetes is a multi organ disease with involvement of almost all organs of body due to its complications.
Blood sugar both fasting and postprandial must be in controlled range.
Diabetes and high blood pressure are the most common causes of deranged renal function worldwide.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist / nephrologist simultaneously and should go for thorough check up.
As per your defined blood reports are considered, your blood urea, serum creatinine are deranged and Microalbuminuria (30-300) level is normal.
You should also go for serum lipid profile, electrocardiography, urine routine microscopy, glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c).
Although few medications are available but chronic kidney disease due to diabetes may need hemodialysis or renal transplant.
You should remain in touch with nephrologist.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
