I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about 6 weeks ago. My doctor did some tests recently and has referred me to a Nephrology specialist. That's a kidney doctor.
So I looked up some information about it. When there's protein in your urine, it means that your kidneys aren't filtering completely. One of the symptoms, which I have, is frequent night time urination.
Just something to consider. You might want to get a urine protein test done.
