Your report suggests that you are suffering from macroalbuminaria as it is above 300 mg/day.
This suggests that you are having diabetic Nephropathy.
Your goals for further management are
1.. Control of blood sugar and hypertension meticulously.
2...avoid nephrotoxic drugs.
3..must control your urinary tract infections promptly.
4...take low potassium and protein diet
5...stop oral anti diabetic drugs and start injectable insulin
6..stop amlodipine and take ACE inhibitors and ARB's for control of systemic hypertension as well as intraglomerular pressure.
6...get managed jointly by a diabetologist and nephrologist.

Dear Mr Murty,

Your blood and urine reprts suggest that you have started leaking proteins in the urine mostly because of the long standing diabetes. For proteinuria like this (more than 1gm), both blood pressure as well as blood sugars have to be controlled very well.

Plus to control the proteinuria, you are already taking one tablet- TERAM 5. Please make sure it does not contain both- Telmisartan 40mg and Ramipril 5mg. If it contains both, then please stop this brand and take either plain telmisartan 80 mg/day or ramipril 10 mg/ day- (you should go to a good physician to get prescription for this).

Please monitor BP closely as lower the BP, lesser the proteinuria. In your case it should not jump above 125/75 mmHg as already the proteins have started spilling into the urine. So if changing the medication doesn't control the BP, then there will be need to increase the dose of T. Amlogard also. See a good Diabetologist for your further management. He/she will take care of it. Wish you good luck.
