Are you on an ACE inhibitor or anything to help prevent kidney disease? If not, and your doctor has never mentioned kidney disease, I think you need to confront your doctor.
I have had protein in my urine twice in the past few years and after panicking the first time I asked my doctor not to tell me about it until there was something we could do because it made me so upset to know and not be able to do anything.
Lisa - welcome to tuD. The problem with peeking at our own charts is that we MIGHT misinterpret something there. I know I would be as bothered about not being told of this kidney condition as I would be about the condition itself. You mentioned MS in another post. Are you dealing with multiple problems? Check out the group for Diabetes Plus if you would like to commiserate with other people and more than one complication. Also, can you confront the doctor or even nursing staff about the note in your chart? That sort of news should be discussed!
