This is termed as early chronic kidney disease.

Apart from diabetes and hypertension following are the other causes of this as following:

1) glomerulonephritis,

2) nephrolithiasis or stones, and

3) polycystic kidney.

4) age related decline in kidney function.

The mainstay of the treatment is;

b) Monthly monitoring of electrolytes.

c) Supplements of vitamin D, calcium and B12.

d) Monitoring of urinary albumin.

e) Low protein diet.

f) Mild exercises.

g) Fluid restriction according to the urine output.
