Proteinuria: You have proteinuria (p), that can lead to other cardiovascular problems. Patients with p have more strokes, mi's and renal failure than those without it. You can take ace-i, arb's and calcium channnel blockers like Diltiazem to reduce both BP and p. You will need to have a 24 hour urine collected to measure your kidney function and quantify how much p/day you have. See your doctor for help.
