Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This means your husband has moderate amount of microalbuminuria.

This is suggestive of diabetic nephropathy.

This can be prevented and treated by ACE inhibitors like lisinopril at maximum dosage 40 mg daily.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
