Diabetes, high BP: Can also be caused by immune kidney disease like glomerulonephritis, kidney infections, medications or toxins. Best evaluated by nephrologist, unless you have diabetes or high blood pressure which is being actively treated. Good luck.

Kidney disease: High protein in urine suggest kidney pathology, most likely one type of glomerulonephritis (something like kidney inflammation), depending of the level of protein you may need biopsy (usually if more than 1 gm per day), for sure if > 3 gm/day) and that is pretty much only way to determine diagnosis and treatment.
