I’d suggest it. I may have missed it if the answer was already here, but I think the albumin blood test is different from the urine protein test. I looked back through all the responses and couldn’t really tell. I think it is different, but I don’t know for sure.
At the offices I’ve worked in, we always have A1C’s and urine protein tests done every 3 months for diabetics, no exceptions. But I’ve never thought to ask if it was different from what appears in blood tests.
Sorry I can’t be more help.
