In brief: Low protein

Low protein diet in which less then 10 to 15% of the diet comes from protein would be recommended if the person has micro albuminuria.

In brief: Low protein

The presence of microalbuminuria means that the diabetes has not been well controlled and you should be paying attention to establishing control.
The diet should be coordinated through your doctor and a registered dietician and will probably reduce your protein intake along with carbohydrate reduction.
