Proteinuria: Proteinuria (p) is an ominous sign in both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. You need to see a nephrologist (n) and have a 24 hour urine collection done for a creatinine clearance and protein. Once the results are back, a treatment plan can start. Patients with p have a higher incidence of stroke, kidney failure and heart attacks related to the severity of their p. See a n for meds to reduce p.
