In brief: See below

Blood sugar control is extremely important it is important to maintain a Albumin level in the normal range and i generally do not recommend severe protein restriction for that reason.
Have a moderate restriction only if Albumin levels are normal maintain LDL cholesterol less than 70 if you have leg swelling or high blood pressure you will need to restrict salt and fluid intake as well.

In brief: Low protein

It is recommended by the american diabetes association for people with kidney insufficiency to be on a lower protein diet.
Limiting consumption of protein intake to 0.8–1.0 grams per kilogram of body weight per day in individuals with diabetes and the earlier stages of chronic kidney disease (ckd) and to 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight per day in the later stages of ckd.
