Question: Kidney problems

My mom is 54 years old and she is diagnosed with borderline diabetes 5 years back. The hypochondriac that she is, she got herself tested for microalbuminurea two years back and it was 5. Last month she got tested and it was 700. Now it came down to 350.

She is taking Cardace, ARB inhibitor.

She is also taking Zyloric for Uric acid. The uric acid was 7% before and now it is 3%.

Symptoms include

1. Foamy Urine
2. Tingling sensation ( parenthesias) almost all the time.
3. On and off Swollen legs.

I am worried about her and not sure what the diagnosis or who to take her.
