Suggest medicine and side effects to reduce microalbuminuria

I am recently dianosed for type II diabetes. My sugar levels are now under control. My microalbuminurea level is 275 to 225. I am 73 yrs old. Male. I have frequent urination especially in the night. After the intake of Urimax 2 mg this frequency has reduced to two or three times a night. My doctor says that albuminurea would reduce stage by stage. I am taking Amaryil 2 mg (twice a day) Ubexo 40 and PPG 2. Kindly inform me what more drugs should I take to reduce microalbuinurea? Also what damage this would create for my kidneys? Thanks

Hi,

Microalbuminuria is a condition in which kidneys start filtering proteins in the urine. It usually occurs in diabetics and occasionally in hypertensives also. To control microalbuminuria, the most important step is to keep your sugar and blood pressure well controlled. once they are controlled, the further progression of microalbuminuria is slowed down. Salt restriction also helps.

There are certain medications which can be started like ACE inhibitors, but I feel they can only be started after certain investigations like kidney function test and serum electrolytes. Many studies have been carried out to study the complications of microalbuminuria. What I would like to tell you is that if not controlled it can affect multiple organs- esp proteinuria and diabetic nephropathy (diabetic kidney disease) and can even further have cardiopulmonary effects (on heart and lungs).

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
