Diabetes and protein levels


Q: I developed diabetes after a total thyroidectomy due to cancer. But, lately I have been struggling to keep my blood sugar up and have twice woken up shaky and blood sugar was in the low 60's. I was told to eat a protein bar to keep my blood sugar level, but my microalbumin showed that I had a protein level of 100. I am concerned about eating the protein bars because of this, but I don't know how to keep my blood sugar up. Can you offer any advice?

Symptoms:  low blood sugar, protein blood work level is 100. Shaky and feel out of it the rest of the day.

A:   Hi
so you have diabetes and recurrent hypoglycemia, and kidney involvement with microalbuminurea. Eating the protein bars does not affect urine protein. You probable need a medicine called ACEinhibitor.
you should see a physician and discuss about it
take care
