High HbA1c : Your father has two problems. One is poorly controlled diabetes and the other is proteinuria. (p). P has ominous implications. Patients with significant p have an increased incidence of renal failure, stroke and cardiac disease. Have a nephrologist collect his urine to see how much protein is in it/day. He will need to be on ace-i or arb's to lower it. Have his glucose controlled so his hb1ac.
