From Manchester, New Hampshire, USA:
A level of 14.1 mg/dl is about double the upper level of normal, but is below 20mg/dl, which is the point at which most diabetes doctors begin to think of drugs like ACE inhibitors. It needs to be watched. In the meantime, aim for the best possible level of control and ask the dietitian in your diabetes care group about safely reducing your protein intake.
