diabetes can eventually effect the kidneys and I think everyone should have their urine tested for protien and perhaps other things that indicate damage and kidney function
 
no docs bothered to do this for me and I eventually found out that I had a large amount of protien accidentally when using a multi test strip
 
this was interprited as a severe problem by some docs who wanted a kidney biopsy, a diabetes specialist admitted he wasnt sure what was happening so finally I got sent to a kidney specialist who was much less worried than the others
I suggest that any diabetic with possible kidney problems should see a kidney specialist and not just rely on GP docs or diabetes specialists, as their knowledge of kidney function isnt great
 
also a protien test for the urine should be insisted on, it can be done on a sample using a test strip, a 24 hour urine collection isnt needed although probably would be a bit more accurate
