Christopher - Do you exercise? If you do, then you might want to refrain from it a couple of days and redo your urine test.
I lift weights and run. If you do, a little bit of protein will show up in your urine - diabetes or not.
I am probably more the panicky one when it comes to kidneys and type one because non-diabetics on my mother's side have had kidney disease.
Your doctor probably put you on Losartan (angiotenisin II antgonist) - which is a blood pressure pill that will protect your kidneys. Other types of BP meds are ace-inhibitors like Lisinopril, etc.
With that being said, the best way to protect against any kidney disease is to get your A1C level down to at least 7% or lower.
Whenever I retest after not exercising - I show no protein in my urine, I am on losartan and was on Lisinopril for years util I got the cough.
An important number is GFR. If this is normal, then no worries. Just be proactive and stay on top of your blood pressure and diabetes control.
