    Micro albumin in urine went up to 1200+. Is there any connection between this and glyburide? Taking 2.5 mg tablet per day for about 15years. Age 68 now..sugar is usually between 90and 145. Controlled. No hypertension b pressure is between 85/129 to 85/140. Controlled, yet why is microbumin so high.anything to do with this drug?
