Hey long time no see everyone :)
I've been worried lately about all the highs I've been having and when I last went for blood work I had a micro-albumen done and it came back positive for protein. I didnt know until now that if the urine is bubbly that that is a sign of protein in the urine...but anyway now that I know that I've been noticing when this does happen. I think I've had this type of thing off and on for a while even before I was diabetic.
First question, who here has been put on kidney protecting meds and whats your experience with them? (I've already got slightly lower blood pressure and poor circulation so the thought of the meds doesn't really sound too appealing because I've heard it is a type of blood pressure lowering medication)
Second question, What causes this protein in the urine? (I know high numbers but my last a1c was 6.2 so I'm a little confused)
Third question, are there any other non medication ways to protect the kidneys or prevent protein in the urine?
Fourth and most important, why the phuck don't we have a cure for this disease yet? :(
