Clarify: Hi. What do you mean a BLOOD test showed urine protein? Please clarify. My guess is a urine test showed increased urinary protein excretion. That's a sign of diabetic kidney disease, and a clear indication to TIGHTLY control diabetes and blood pressure. Proteinuria occurs prior to a bump in serum creatinine in diabetic kidney disease, and you may bring it way back toward normal with tight DM & BP.
