Hello,

Thanks for choosing HCM.
In my opinion the problem you are facing is diabetic nephropathy in which you will have protenuria which is common but if you have more than 5grams of 24hr protein then you need a biopsy which need to be done for knowing exact cause. About your medication if your dose of medication for bp and sugars is not sufficient then you need to change the drugs tab.galvas 50mg bd os better that ta .metformin in kidney patients. Please check for diabetic retinopathy changes in eye also . Alovera juice in allopathy medicine we dont exactly know whether it is worth taking or not.
Take care.

Regards
Dr.Alekhya
