Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This indicates diabetic nephropathy (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It means your kidneys have been affected by the long standing diabetes and you need to avoid drugs which are primarily metabolized and excreted via kidneys. Metformin should be avoided in near future and consider replacing it with Insulin shots. Consult your Nephrologist to streamline your drugs and dosages and dietary modifications as applicable and remain on follow up.
