In brief: Usually none

This term generally refers to excessive amount of protein leaking out into the urine.
It is detected by urine tests, in combination with blood testing. In severe cases, in part, you may have edema (swelling).

In brief: Diabetic nephropathy

Unfortunately diabetic nephropathy is usually asymptomatic until the kidney disease so very advanced.
The things kidney doctors look for is protein in the urine and the degree of kidney function. If the amount of protein that is in the urine can be decreased, this has a positive effect on the health of the kidneys.
